I grew this vine (Eccremocarpus scaber) from seeds for the very first time this year, and I guess I must be doing something wrong because it sure seems like the most delicate, useless plant I've ever tried to grow.
They've gotten about 2-3 feet tall, but there's just one really skinny, fragile stem on each vine with only a few airy leaves and lots of teeny tiny tendrils reaching out to grab the trellis it's growing on. I just can't imagine it ever getting very big or blooming very much. Does it need to be pinched to promote bushiness?
The Dave's Garden website says it's a tender perennial, so will it even bloom the first year at all?
Sure seems like a big waste of time and space to me.
