I tried to grow two plants, full sun, well watered and they just never took. They just sort of laid there with brown vines, green leaves, and limp. I have pulled them from full sun and put them together in a 12" planter and we shall see.

This plant did not grow well for me, I am hoping it will do better this year. I planted in full sun and kept watered but it's been several months and I don't know if it will make it.CG, Washington, United States, 36 weeks ago
