This year my kid was playing with the soil and accidentally cut the only stem, i noticed when the vine was gone :(

Last year just before bakra eid, a wild goat attacked at the root zone and grabbed the only stem away from soil bed. I was furious.

This vine hardly produces any seeds hence a rare vine.
