I have been growing a Rivea corymbosa or ololiuhqui plant for about 5 years now. It is planted on a WA farm in a semi-arid climate. The plant is HUGE and has has covered about 20SQM. But for the life of me I can not get this thing to flower. I have tried adding a fair amount of phosphate over the years but still no flowers. If anyone has any tips on getting this beautiful creeper to flower I would much appreciate it.
Can anyone compare the growth rate & vine size/thickness of these creepers? Morning glory (MG) Rivea Corymbosa (RC) Argyreia Nervosa (HBWR) I have a large lattice in a sunny position I would like to grow some sort of vine over for added privacy & was thinking of using HBWR or RC. I already have MG growing down my fence line & its a pain. I rip it out every year only for it to come back again & again (its been there for years & has become almost indestructible). The vine grows fast, gets in the trees, on the shed & over just about anything it's tendrils can reach. I don't want another vine that grows as quickly & invasively as this, but I do like the idea of having a developed HBWR or RC in my garden. After reading HBWR & RC "can be invasive" & the fact their from the same family I'm somewhat weary they could become as much a pain as MG..... do they grow as fast? Cheers for you're help, AF
