I truly enjoyed this plant, which I received as rooted and unrooted cuttings from a plant trade last year. I grew two outdoors, and each plant branched nicely and filled a 10" hanging basket that got blazing afternoon sun from around 3:00 to sunset all summer. I watered when it wilted, which wasn't every five minutes. Surprisingly. it liked to use its tendrils to climb up, but I just detached them to let it hang.

The foliage was lush and beautifully shaped, like small green butterflies. The exotic-looking pink flowers didn't smother the plant by any means, but the ones that showed were delightful.

I let the plants dry out when I brought them in for the winter and I'm afraid I've lost them, but I recently decided to soak them and see if anything happens. I'd taken cuttings when I brought them in, but allowed those to dry out, too (sigh).

I went ahead and soaked them and a couple of weeks later I clipped the remaining dry stems close to the main stem--and saw green! Scratching the dried brown outer layer of the main stem revealed green, too. So hopefully I haven't lost them completely. I'll update further with my results.
