Site for a Red Jade Vine ( Mucuna bennetti)
I have been fortunate enough to get a cutting of the above, about 2 feet tall and would like some advice about where to plant it. I have 3 possible sites, accepting that probably none of them is ideal. One: among trees in rich, very moist soil at the bottom of a ravine. It gets sun about 4 hours a day, either side of noon but is still pretty shady. Two: in an open, sometimes windy area with full sun in the morning till about lunchtime, after that mainly shaded, red clay soil, less rich and moist than One. Three, on the terrace next to the house in a large pot, sun in the morning but not as much as Two, any soil mix you like. In each case it would have a tall wire fence or trellis to grow up. Our climate is tropical-at-altitude (850 meters, generally pretty warm but with a few cool winter nights). Look forward to hearing from you!
