Dear Esteemed Colleagues,
I've noticed that sometimes when a main growing vine is done flowering, that the vine starts to die while producing new basal shoots. In the case of my inermis, the whole plant died in the vining stage. I know flowering takes a lot of energy, but is this a common occurence? Usually most of my neps just keep vining after flowering often producing more flower stalks on the same vine. Some of the species this has happened to are N. inermis, N. ovata, N. aristolochioides, and N. ventricosa to name a few examples. Any thoughts?
