Q. Invasive Plants

I think it is important for you to more clearly explain to people what ‘invasive’ means and guide them not to plant such plants – since they are so bad for the environment. Example: porcelain berry.
Your listing for this vine does recommend in small print at the bottom to check with whoever to see if it is invasive…. I think a giant flag at the top of the page would be more attention getting
Thanks.

We answer questions from around the country and not all plants that are invasive in one zone, are invasive in another.
We encourage gardeners to check with their local County Extension for a list of invasive plants to your region.

Q. porcelain berry video e

Hello,we bought our visitors from a local nursery. They have been growing great and this will be it’s 4th yr they made it up and over our pergola to the top.They’re also budding on the existing vine .However this yeart not a single bud, but lots of growth from the bottom. Disappointed because we were happy this year they finally would have covered the top to give us the shade we have been waiting for.No disease on it, but am very curious why all of a sudden all the vines have no buds.Your info would be much appreciated. Thanks so much,,,,,tracy

It is likely that the soil needs fertilization, although this is uncommon with the plant. You can take samples to your local agricultural center to have samples taken. They will be able to tell you what you lack in your soil. This article will help you on the care of these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/porcelain-vine/growing-porcelain-berry-vine.htm

Q. How can you host articles like ‘how to grow porcelain berry’?

It’s just crazy irresponsible to signal to people that it’s ok to plant terrible invasives like porcelain berry. Saying ‘it can be agressive’ is insufficient.

Every plant has the capacity to become invasive given the right conditions. To be fair to everyone that visits our site, we must include information to grow plants that may be invasive in some areas, but will barely grow in others.

Those that can't grow the plant will need extra information to get them to grow in certain areas, and excluding that information would be unfair.

It is up to each individual to have self accountability- to be a responsible gardener making sure that any plant that is planted will not harm the area, make sure that it is not invasive in the area, and do all diligent research on the plant before planting.
