Thanks for the report SDPirate. Perhaps its skill more than luck =)

Got some small vines popping from an old seed pot, might be p. nitida. Obviously, not giving up.

Here is pics from today:



The main vine near the soil has gotten pretty thick and woody:



Trust me I have no skill unless you count surfing this forum for a year and googling the species for 5 minutes.  I just make sure it is moist throughout summer, helps that I don't pick up the fallen leaves and just leave them on top of the soil to lock it in.  A good misting on the leaves on hot days to keep up humidity and a little hollytone once in a blue moon when I remember.  Stays in in full sun year round.  I don't really recommend this species here as it is somewhat slow and stumbles through winter.  That being said alive for now now and thriving to a certain degree.  Once I get it to a fruiting stage (if it isn't self sterile, seems like we don't know) or the point where I can let go of some cuttings I will come back here and let you all know.
