Kudzu – Growing Indoors
Q: I live in Nevada and would like try growing kudzu as a indoor house plant. Do you know where I can purchase seeds? Margie R.
A: As we say in the South “Margie, Margie, Margie….are you tetched in the head?” But we also say “Here – hold my beer while I try this!”
You obviously know that kudzu is invasive in the South. I don’t think it would survive a Nevada winter outdoors so raising the vine indoors is your only hope.
November is a good time to collect seeds so if you have any friends in GA, they could go collect some for you. Otherwise, I found seeds available on EBay.
