So this is it currently:

It's a morning glory scarlet o'hara.

I pinched the stem when I was moving it on the 12th (of this month):

As you can see it was very wilty and definitely would of died.

So I cut above the damaged part of the stem (which wasn't a whole lot) and dipped it in powdered root growth hormone.

Currently it looks good like it is growing as you can see a new 3rd leaf appeared and a 4th one is growing too (though still very very small)

I'm worried though that it isn't growing roots though and is just um sucking up water and growing with what energy is left in it until it finally dies.


Does anyone have any experience with this or even thoughts and opinions?

I keep the little pot in water and a plastic bag over the plant but not zipped closed just so it can keep humid.

You may want to germinate another seed. This seedling may make it but I don't know for sure.

Joseph I planted a few of them this year that are growing but this is the 1st year I've tried scarlet o'hara.

Last year I did grandpa ott, that was the 1st year I bought seeds to try growing anything. That should give you an idea of how much of a newbie I am.

I remember my grandma tending to her garden as a child and I've taken care of two marigolds my son gave my on different mother's day but really I am very new to raising plants.

You will enjoy the vines you selected. I think many of us first learned about morning glory by growing Scarlett O'Hara and Grandpa Ott's.

I like the deep purples Grandpa Ott's offers and the intense reds Scarlett O'Hara can sometimes give to the grower.

Well it definitely grew roots -_-;

As you can see it is still alive and growing new leaves. It seems to be growing more slowly compared to the other morning glory scarlet o'hara but I am happy it's alive.

Not sure what I am gonna do since it needs to be transplanted

I'll think of something I am sure :/
