Good luck with it Joseph...I may have a few seeds if it doesn't make it.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

It is producing its first true leaf. It may make it. I want to see how big the fat root gets.

It is funny to see how the leaf shape changed.

Looking forward to follow the progress Joseph... Smiling

Can anyone tell me more about the (lack of?) fragrance from I. lindheimeri? When I read on the subject - it seems there are a number of people who did not find scent with I. lindheimeri. Did they put their noses in the wrong Ipomoea?

I have found it to be very light in fragrance Shrug!

Maybe those who could not smell the fragrance were smokers. I think the smell was faintly reminiscent of spices of some sort.

Thanks for the input Ronnie and Joseph. I have a small plant on its way - so hopefully I will get a chance to test it also....

Latest growth is beginning to show the typical leaf shape of the leaf.
