growing moonflowers indoors?
I love this plant but have found that in my area it takes about 4 months to even begin blooming...and consequently it can be October before it puts out the buds - needless to say, they don't make it to flowerhood. And oh how I look forwarrd to the incredible smell of moonflowers! Last year I was depressed to smell one flower. One. dozens of buds , but they never got to bloom as the cold just took it out of the plants. A local acquaintance in my area commented on the very same experience with theirs last summer! We are obviously severely moonflower challenged over here :)
So...I was thinking...why not grow them indoors permanently??? Has anyone ever done this successfully - ie...gotten them to flower?? I don't have a greenhouse or conservatory so I am talking about my family room, which is a bright SE room .
