My candy corn vine is vining nice, but it seems to NOT want to set blossoms. At the present time I have only 1 flower on it. It gets sun/partial sun & I water it when dry & that is sometimes almost every day here in MN. Any advice??

Have you given it any fertilizer? There's a brief article on caring for this plant over here, with suggestions for the type of fertilizer it prefers:

Yay! Thank you for the link! I was thinking mine would have more blooms than it does. I had been using sporadic Neptune's Harvest. No improvement. Plenty of vine though!

Don't forget to check out the entry for "Candy Corn Vine" (Manettia luterubra) in the ATP database:
