I see little roots coming out of the bottom of the pot. This angel vine was transplanted in the spring to a larger pot and placed outside. It has grown considerably. Should I transplant it again now that I have brought it in my home for the winter?
Most experts find the best time to repot is in late spring/early summer. It's best not to subject your plant to the stress of repotting on top of the stress of moving indoors. It will be growing much less vigorously in the winter anyway - a few roots coming out the bottom of the pot won't hurt anything.
I started this plant from a stem cutting. It has rooted and grown in length. Also, a new stem has grown from underneath the soil. I would like to know how I should cut this plant to encourage more branching (should I touch the little stem which just reaches above the rim of the pot?). I would love for my plant to look like the one shown in the green pot (a photo from Google). How long do you think it would take to obtain this result? Thanks!
Keep you plant evenly moist and in a bright location.
Pinch back the growth often to keep the plant from becoming too leggy.
This plant is a fast grower and you should have a nice size plant in no time.
I had gotten this plant a month ago, and it was doing good. I was watering it and misting it because it liked the humidity; however, all the leaves started to wilt and shrivel up, so I removed them. I think it might have done this because I over misted the leaves, but I am not positive. Almost all the leaves have been taken off, but I do not know what else to do. I repotted it, but I am not sure If it is able to be revived. The roots are very good and the vines are good. it is called (Muehlenbeckia complexa)! Thank you
It likes moist, but well-drained soil. I would let the top of the soil dry out between waterings. I suspect too much moisture. I also would hold back on the misting.
It likes a sunny disposition, if you can offer it more light.
Go ahead and trim it back a few inches to encourage growth.
It probably is suffering from shock from the change in environment. It should perk up soon.
Hi, I read your page on Angel Vine. I think this is a very pretty plant. I have two questions. Firstly, how can I tell if I have a male and a female plant or just two males and two females? I bought two plants at a local nursery, but they are not marked. Secondly, since I like this plant so much, can you suggest some others I might like for growing both indoors and/or outdoors? Thanks, jt
I did an exhaustive online search and cannot find how to tell the male and female plants apart. When they flower, you can examine the reproductive organs to tell. The article below tells which has what. If one fruits, you will know you have a female. Most articles just say to propagate by softwood or semi-softwood cuttings.
Here are some plants that do well in your zone 8:
Your article says to make sure you have a male and female angel vine plant in order to propagate it by seed but it does not tell you how to determine the male or female from each other so how would I know if I have 1 of each? I want to buy 1 of each but I need to know their differences first. Thanks
Generally, you will obtain many plants and wait to see flowers. Once you do, you may need a magnifying glass. A female plant will have, only, one reproductive stigma. It will be in the center of the flower. The male flower will have several stamen, which will be covered in pollen.
