Thanks Jacqueline, there's more new growth at the end of one of the vines but the middle of the vine looks half dead. I don't know whether to cut it off and try and root it, any ideas? 🤔 @awomanonabike

Yes Jane take a cutting and leave the original plant that has the roots as it may sprout again

Hi Jane. If you do you’ll be there all day! Once it gets going there will be so many. It doesn’t seem to stop it flowering if you leave them in and they keep their colour for ages. Mine has actually self-seeded too so, having bought some seedlings I now have loads of my own 🙈🤷‍♀️

That great Jacqueline, thank you. Oh I hope mine self seeds and I'm going to attempt to overwinter them too @awomanonabike 🤔🤔

The one that I put in the greenhouse didn’t make it. The one I left in the very large pot on the balcony came back. Work that one out 🤷‍♀️

How on earth did that happen? I was just about to put my Rhodochitons in a hanging basket when I saw what I assumed was a bit of Lobelia hanging off it so I went to brush it off and it wouldn’t move so I looked closer and it’s actually growing out of the Rhodo. If you follow the Lobelia stem you can see it. #confused 6/6/19

I really haven’t got a clue Shelley, I keep looking at it, but it’s definitely firmly fixed and coming out of leaf joint. I’ve planted it up so I’ll see what happens @ShelleySnyder 🤔🤔
