am so glad to see it thriving...
for some reasons ... the Antigonon leptopus populations in West Bengal
have dwindled , almost not seen any vine that's thriving... a few are
struggling...

haven't seen any that have fruits/seeds on them...

NEHA did you see any seedpods???

thanks

The climber grows wild in Chennai in pink / white coloured flowers.
One can see this climber, during this season, everywhere.

Balkar ji... by seeds is the best way..
I had collected seeds from a friends' garden fence in 1993 in central
florida, and let them dry, stored them in red topped sterile test
tubes with airtight stoppers at RT .... and in 1996 or 1997 spring
planted them... in 1998 summer had a thriving flowering vine in my
6-8 gallon soilless potting mix pot in my balcony, over-wintered
inside (it snows where I was) ... after flowering though it died in
the pot, and I wanted to reuse the pot and to my surprise found
tubers... I cut open the tubers to photograph... so cant tell you if
they would grow or not... BUT from what I read... tubers are used
for famine food in its native central and south america and the
tubers sprout to give new vines in case of forest fires... they
survive deep inside the soil when every thing else chars... so may
be they need heated soil, or very alkaline soil (from the ashes of the
vines and other plants) to re-sprout.... or some bacteria or fungi
that overtake the burnt forest soil after the fire may release some
growth factors....

I wonder if anybody has tested soil for such factors after a forest
fire where antigonon grows ??


SEEDS are the best way.... if they are from a thriving vine like this
one that Neha has...


otherwise... semi woody stems and rooting hormone had worked for some
other vines for me... but I have not tried that in India...

Balkar ji... forgot to tell you I had saved one tuber and planted
it...next spring..but did not grow...
my garden club friends had thought that perhaps it was not old / large
enough...with only one growing season, that too growing in balcony in
a pot may not have stored enough energy to re-sprout...
