    Received a cutting of this early this month/late last month. Not only has it already rooted, it even gave me a bloom.

    I'll try to get a pic of the plant later -- though may be a few days. Truthfully the plant isn't much to look at, at this point. It was a about a 6" cutting which I coiled up in the pot and is likely still that size. I know it has rooted as I can see the roots through the clear sides of the little pot. Was thoroughly amazed that it bloomed already. Plant has a vining habit with small narrow leaves approx. 1" in length. The flower was also approx. 1" tall.
