attend to all the problems that this climate presents. I have ,by accident a plant growing in a pot which is three feet off the g round which may be why it’s thriving. There is really nowhere for it to grow since the ground underneath is paved driveway. It j ust must be a perfect blend of sun and water because the main stem is now about 3/4 in. Any suggestions of what to do with the vin es?? Do they need soil for those feeder roots, not sure if that is the right terminowledgy, please advise

The plant will, naturally, send out runners, which will need to root in their own separate area. It would take multiple containers for each area that tries to send roots out. Now, it will continue to grow, but it will not be able to sustain a fruit in container, unfortunately.
