As Star Ipomoea are climbing vines they should be given a trellis or similar structure to grow upon. Quamoclit species are able to grow in both sunny or partially shaded conditions and prefer a light and sandy soil.
If first growing Star Ipomoea or similar species indoors then chip the seeds and soak for a day in warm water. The Quamoclit seeds should then be germinated at 18 to 22 degrees centigrade; this should take from one to three weeks. Transplant the seedlings outdoors in mid spring.
