Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral zemerson On Nov 17, 2005, zemerson from Calvert County, MD (Zone 7a) wrote:

Pucrchased one of these this year. Quite a robust vine with large, pale green, almost chartreuse leaves (mine were 5-pointed but they can become up to 7 or 8 pointed on a mature plant) and a fleshy stem. It seems prone to curling it's leaves and turning them yellow (more so than normal) when in less-than-typical conditions (i.e. dryness, small pot, viruses). It seems to be easily propagatable by cuttings and I managed to root even the "hollow stemmed" vine-tip cuttings simply in water on a windowsill.
