For best results, grow Tetrastigma voinierianum in bright but indirect sunlight in a loam-based compost. Feed with a liquid fertiliser, such as liquid seaweed, each month while it’s in active growth. It will appreciate a regular misting, too. Water regularly while it’s in active growth and cut back in winter.
