I noticed that there were foliar extrafloral nectaries on my young Argyreia thorelii plants. Big nectar globes at the base of the leaves.

Oh I really like the leaf shape! It looks very happy like it's getting lots of sun!

Thanks, Zella. Everything I do is an experiment with these plants, having not ever grown Argyreia before.

Well Joseph it looks like you're doing a very good job!

Everyone has to start somewhere and that's pretty much where I am with most of my plants. I used to kill everything given to me then one mothers day my son gave me a marigold (he probably got it from school to give) and for the 1st time I was determined not to let something die on me. I named the plant Clifford (after the big red dog) cause it turned out to be a TALL variety of marigold. But it lived and bloomed and now I've gotten into gardening <3

You'll do great with morning glories, Zella. The plants respond well to a person who cares about them.

I received it as a gift. My benefactor didn't reveal the seed source.

I can't wait to see it grow this summer.
