Hi all,
I have Ipomoea platensis from seeds too. It is now 12 year old, a really big tuberous root emerging from the ground ( I grow it in pot).  In winter I cut the vegetation and leave the pot (clay pot) almost dry in a  min. +10 room. I put once a month a little water from the bottom. In spring when I see the sprouting gems I begin to water freely.
