English Name : Golden Cascade
Nong Nooch Vine (Petraeovitex bambusetorum)
Cultural Information – Petraeovitex
Light: Full or partial sun, a southern, eastern or western exposure.
Temperature: Maintain indoor temperatures above 60. They can be grown cooler but
this will slow growth and can put them into semi dormancy.
Humidity: Preferably 50% or higher; however, they will tolerate low levels with no
Watering: Bring soil to a state of visual dryness between watering. When watering,
thoroughly saturate soil until a little water runs out of the bottom of the
pot. Growing in a clay pot will help maintain a healthy root system.
Fertilizer: They need moderate levels of fertilizer. Give them more under high light.
Generally, fertilize with ½ tsp of fertilizer per gallon of water once a
week. Excessive fertilization can disrupt blooming. Use a balanced
fertilizer like a 15-15-15 or a blooming fertilizer like a 7-9-5.
Pruning: Prune after flowering in the fall to not disrupt the blooming cycle as
flowers form on the tips of vining growth. As it is an aggressive vine, the
climbing leads can be selectively removed anytime to manage its size.
Insects and Disease: It has some susceptibility to mealybugs.
Comments: Petraeovitex is an unusual and spectacular climber that is easy to
culture. We flower them in 10” on 3’ stakes. A little training is needed in
wrapping the vines around itself, allowing the pendulous chains of
blooms to cascade off the plant. The root system is strong and has no
problems with root disease. Remember flowers form at the tips of
growing vines from spring to fall.
