Zaib, Never sent cuttings to outside lahore or pakistan. These are soft wood cuttings, not sure how they will end up. You can share the packet of seeds of umar khan. There are enough seeds in the packet that easily many gardeners can divide. The seeds is the easiest to germinate!!!!!
Well. thanks a lot. if you are gonna send seeds to umar bhai, i can get a single plant from him. he has a second residence in Islamabad. have fun...:D

My plants are making these flower buds like crazy ... every single node carries them on the new growth, but they are maturing at snail's speed, I thing this is another feature for its name "snail vine" :mrgreen: .. cant wait to see it blooming...
