  • Best time to plant: Anytime night temperatures are at least 50F and expected to increase in the next month or so. (spring through late summer)


  • Sun: This plant can take direct sun until about 95F-100F. It will tend to burn at higher temperatures. More sun=more growth. This plant will also grow indoors. Indoors, place the plant in a well lit area such as a window, kitchen, etc away from air vents.


  • Winter: Surpringly, this plant will tolerate temperatures down in the low 20f's. Protect from frost and cold wind.


  • Growth rate: It grows relatively fast. More light=faster growth. Keep in mind, this is a vine and it will need some type of support to climb.


  • Root system: Shallow roots non-invasive.


  • Flowering/fruiting: This plant will only flower when planted in ground. It usually takes an average of 3-5 years to see flowers. It will flower in the spring and the fruit takes about a full calendar year to ripen. The fruit looks similar to an elongated pine cone.


  • Fertilization: In ground all this plant needs is compost/mulch every once in a while. In a pot, you can use any slow release fertilizer. We use Osmocote fertilizer on all our plants. The ratio is irrelevant so don't worry too much about the numbers. (Any) slow release fertilizer will work.


  • Water: In our experience, this plant can tolerate wet and drought. Don't let its looks deceive you. Water shallow, let soil dry a few inches then water again. During winter months or if kept indoors, keep it on the dry side.


  • Container growing: This plant does well in a container. Remember though, it will grow and you will need to eventually up-pot/prune etc. Never up-pot a small plant into a huge pot, only up-pot in increments.
