I tried various methods via cuttings and even used root growing hormone but all of them died. I have not seen any seeds from this plant. It can be found in Malacca, Malaysia under the local name of "Kesidang".

In lahore pakistan this vine has various local names like "Soniya", "ButterCup" vine etc. It is very strong grower and grows very fast. It does not flower well in pots. I have it in a clay pot and it occasionally flowers. Blooms are fragrant in evening. i will try to make it bloom more by giving more fertilizer, i hope it will do the job. It needs full sun though.
