    They are pretty small (use paper towel for reference)

    They're definitely smaller than the paper towel.

    BB, I will plant around 30 seeds tomorrow and so long as Ootai doesn't start complaining again, I'll transplant any that germinate into their own plastic plant pot. You are more than welcome to a few.

    Looking forward to it. I will put some of the ones I got in the dirt also and see what happens.

    That is in fact a very good question Mike and it's searching minds that make this forum.

    Firstly, I don't know if this vine is the type to put out feelers in which case I don't think the spiraling direction is relevant. If it is a spiraling climber then my money is on anti-clockwise (when viewed from underneath).

    I will keep you guys posted.

    In the US we correctly say "Counterclockwise" where in the UK , much like your driving. use the wrong "Anticlockwise"
    People have a lot of things to complain about the Brits , and rightly so but inconsistency is not one of them.
    i am sure the above truth might anger some . But before any one decides to say something about the Greeks , just remember that we invented the yo-yo

    Are you thinking anticlockwise is counter intuitive? Is anti-terrorism the same as counter-terrorism

    Anticlockwise is any direction, where counterclockwise is the direction opposite to clockwise

    With an anticlockwise attitude thing for you can quickly go sideways .

    I might, and if I have, it will not be the first time or the last time, not that I would ever admit it, unless forced to do so, and perhaps not even then. I am sure I can find a way to weasel out of admitting I am wrong.
    So, when you are anti, you are not for , so if you are anticlockwise , you are not for a clockwise direction , but in a four dimensional environment there is an infinite number of directions other than to the right.
    ....Infinite because any number can be infinitely divided.
    But counterclockwise implies an direction directly opposite of the one present. and sinse clockwise is to the right, counterclockwise can only be to the left
    What am I missing ?
    Please don't say a brain. That would be hurtful

    BB you'd be right if say we were in Greece in the 2-3 c BC and were using Astrolabes but our analogue time measuring devices now tend to operate on one plane. Time and language have moved on, you need to stop harking back over 2000 years to your glory days

    That would be correct if the terms clockwise and the other one were only used to describe time, but in the case, lets say of a falling flower which is what stirred this hornet's nest, said item falling anticlockwise could be any direction other than clockwise , where counterclockwise can only be the opposite of clockwise .
    I would let it go, but I love you too much to let you to live a lie.

    on a dial watch you'd be correct, i'm glad we put that to bed.

    incidentally we don't just use anti all the time in the UK, we have a number of counters, usually organisations like he Police Counter Terrorism Security Office but that only exists because the Greeks invented terrorism

    Anyway, I've been thinking about your seeds and I don't think they're ready. I would wait until the flowers are dying at the end of the season and then collect dried ones. The seed pod should be hard and dry within the base of the flower (ovary).

    I think the seeds the neighbours gave me were from last year because they also showed me a small seedling about 18 inches tall, and I would think that had been planted some months ago from last year's seeds.

    I sure like that flowering vine BB. I'd like to grow that on my pool fence. I will have to see if my wife can track some down. I can plant behind and let them vine up and over.

    Are they green year round and flower once a year type vine?

    Ours is Green all year round and has flowered several times. But this time was the most.
    It also grows very quick. We got ours about a year ago and I don't remember how big it was but I remember that we put it in our car, so it could not had been more than four ft.

    Just keep in mind that it drops it's flowers a lot (as you can see on our grass) and if you have it too close to the pool ...
    unless you like flowers floating in your pool, which IMO might not bee so bad .
    Just make sure you get one that drops its flowers counterclockwise and not the one that does anticlockwise because those little suckers will be all over the place

    I often see a couple of Bumblebees feeding from it but nothing that would be of concern, I have also seen some very pretty butterflies . And a couple of birds have made a best there
    Lovely to hear the chicks calling , but they were making a mess dropping blades of grass while building it, but I did not have the heart to make them move. Now they have babies and have squatter rights LOL
