Hi Nadine, It is normal for the snail vine to die back in cooler climates it is a tropical plant. You can try saving seeds to plant once the temps are warm. Or you can grow from cuttings in spring or summer. Rooting hormone may help and keep moist with a plastic bag or inside a propagator.

They are pollinated by ants - if you have no ants, you'll have no pods and therefore no seeds.
