Hi. I got my dad a Rangoon creeper. I put it in an area that gets a lot of full sun near a ladder and it took off. It didnt flower, though. I then replanted it in a bigger pot since it was growing so fast. Growth has stopped and the plant looks limp. I am a novice with plants and would appreciate any tips to coax it back into growing and hopefully flowering.
It sounds like it might be in shock. This article will help you with that:
I live in Thailand. This is now December and the leaves are shedding. Do I need to cut it back to regenerate growth?
Yes, you can cut back your Rangoon creeper now to propmote future flowering. If the plant is growing too large, you can also trim it back at any time of year.
I ordered a Quisqualis indica "Rangoon Double" (gal). planted in ground. All leaves fell off. Located near my arbor. Repotted it and placed where partial sun and shade. Leaves came back but all fell off again. Do you think root is still alive and what kind of care does this plant require?
Do the stems bend or snap off and break?
If they bend, it may still be alive.
This article will refresh you on the care requirements.
RANGOON CREEPER IF YOU AHVE IT WE WANT TO BUY
We do not sell plants from this site. Try a Goggle search for plants. You can also check on Ebay and Etsy; they can be a source of plants or seeds.
why are some of my leaves rust or red colored?
From your description it sounds like your vine may be fruiting.
This link has more information.
We have a fence with roughly 12 support posts spaced 6 feet apart.
Rangoon creeper is a tropical flowering vine and very prolific.
They will grow 10 or 12 feet in each direction, so 3 or 4 plants should get you the coverage you want.
You can plant now if you can water them adequately, but ideal timing would be in spring. With a freeze, the vine will die back in zone 9 but should return from the roots.
My Blue Sky vine and Rangoon Creepers got nipped down to the ground by a late in the season hard freeze. It is almost June and have not seen any shoots coming out of the ground. I have checked the roots and they are just fine. The tiny stem of the Blue Sky vine is still green. Should I pull them up and start over or just wait a while longer to see what happens.
There is no harm in waiting and with signs of good roots and green; it may take awhile to send up shoots.
