Hi, Gene.  Thanks for the welcome.  I've tried a number of times to buy 
seeds of the Ipomoea platensis off ebay but could never win them.  So I 
finally was able to buy a root of it in the fall.  I potted it up and it 
started to grow.  I don't know if this was the right thing to do, but I did. 
I have it under my plant lights.
