Ipomoea tuberculata is one of the first caudex-forming Morning Glories I am growing. Although still seedlings, the very small tubers looked promising during transplanting.
I plan on planting them in a raised bed with trellises for maximum growth next spring, then pot them up for winter dormancy indoors.
There is very little information I could find on this species.
I am eager to see the plants a year from now, and I hope to add more information regarding growth and cultivation.
