$40 is a bit pricey for me. I am checking if other folks on this forum has something more affordable.

I have the one with smooth longer leaves. Is it supposed to have fuzzy leaves? Are there different kinds of jelly vines in Vietnam?

I grow jelly vines Cyclea barbata the real deal with the fuzzier leaves. I also grow yanang vine that is used in bamboo curries and they are not genuine jelly vines like some literature says.
Cyclea barbata grows and fruits prolifically in a warm climate.

I thought every Asian had this in their household next to a Pandan?

I can give you some cuttings if you'd like, mine is growing out of control.
Probably around 6-7 feet tall, lots of dieback, the top canopy is health and lush.
With a cutting I'm sure you can get it to root very rapidly as they're quite invasive.
I grow mine in a container, kept on the patio. I'll send you pictures just PM me.
It's the smooth skin variety, no fuzz.

Waxy.

I appreciate it a lot .  I do have the pandan already. Looking to add jelly vine to my garden.  I have pandan seedling that I can trade you. Have you make it into jelly? how does it taste?

Where do you all get your pandan? I see a local nursery sell it but they looked small for $20.
Anyway, I see that the black jelly plant seeds are available in the US now. Mesona chinensis. I'm not sure if that seller is reliable.

my sister got it from local farmers market in SF 3yrs ago that's about 2inchs.  Now, it's 2feet tall. i am separating & transplanting the little new babies to make more plants. I got two huge plants died in unheated greenhouse. they don't like cold.

I have a few of the pandans and they grow vigorously. They are not all standard and better culinary lines are more aromatic and some poorer types hardly ad any flavour in cooking.

That's good to know. I thought they were all sterile clones of one another.

I recommend if you have some extra resources to keep the pandan in an insulated container or aquarium with an aquarium heater.
Pandans love heat and water, why not give them the best of both worlds.
I'm doing that right now with a smaller pandan, seems to be doing ok so far, considering how cold it has been here lately, mid 30's.

I was advised to not let the plant itself sit in water. Only the prop roots should be in water.

I've had mine in a 5 gallon flat pot, soaked in warm water all year long without issues.
Just not the entire plant submerged in water that would definitely kill the plant.
The warm wet feet basically absorbs into the soil as needed, being warm is even better.
3-4 inches of water at the foot of the pot, with a titanium heater set at 60-70 degrees.

Not going to lie but oh my got man...Pandan waffles are the best waffles in the world fresh!
You know, those green waffles you get from the Asian markets after you stuff your face with a bowl of pho hahaha!

I meant waffles, not Pancakes -_-

Waxy,
Thanks for dropping by with the jelly vines.  Sorry I missed you and not able to give you the title baby pandan. Next time you head to SF, drop by to pick up the pandan. 
I agree with you in regards to planting the plant in water with just the roots wet.   I am currently planting the little babies in a small pot, and putting the put in a glass vase with half the pot submerge in water.  It is doing fine inside the house.

You're very welcome, it wasn't a big problem.
No worries about the Pandan.

That big mound in your driveway, was there something burning inside because I saw smoke come out of the center.
Your home looked like a nursery lol with all the stuff growing.

ah yes, it's fresh wood chips which I am using as mulching for the backyard.  It is heated and smoking from the inside naturally.  It's sort of good for the tropical trees as it helps keep it warn this winter.   
I ran out of space in the backyard and started to creep into the front yard, then slowly into the driveway. Still, it is not enough space.   I'm doing lots of banana, guava,cherimoya, mango.  I can give you a tour if you're passing by again.
