    Vines: What do they Climb?

    Yea.... maybe I have to look in a freshwater bog for driftwood. And I can always attach it to the outside of the pot to mitigate the concerns, just seems like a pretty inelegant approach. Not 100% sure the origin of my plants' ancestors but the guess of the original owner is Hose Mtns. The new...

    Vines: What do they Climb?
