Pruning/cutting back Moonflower vine?

woburJune 30, 2008

I am growing Moonflowers in pots on my deck, and have them started growing up my 4ft. railing with twine. Should I pinch them when they get to the top, or train them to grow horiaontally? Do they need to reach a certain height to bloom well? Thanks! Wobur

Is your plant like this one?
it is a strong wine climbing, will give you a lot of seeds,
take off the seed will give more flower.I did pinch them in the beginning but it's not help, they growing like crazy!!
see my pict. will give you some ideals.
