I'd welcome a wiki page of Ipomoea.  Also Merremia and Turbina.  I don't
think I'd enjoy a photograph of the sweet potato bin at the local
supermarket, though.
Regarding germination of I. pandurata.  Its seed may have a hard coat that
needs to be filed or nicked before it is planted.  This is certainly the
case with I. alba.
I've tried germinating Tropaeolum speciosum seed a couple of times.  They
never germinated, but developed a healthy coat of mold.  I suspect these
seeds must be sown soon after harvest and do not tolerate extended dry
