Hi guys, I know that I'll be advised to avoid the plant entirely, but I'm not inclined to heed those warnings :). I would, however, like to minimize the invasiveness of the beautiful vine. Should I just plant this in one of those 50 gallon tubs without dranage?

You can plant it in a large pot/tub, but it must have drainage holes! If you are worried about the vine creeping through the holes, set it on pavers or something solid that the roots can't grow through, and keep an eye on it. I set all of my pots on pavers, in saucers, tile, etc. I don't want to try to move the pot and find out it has rooted to the ground.

I agree
