That's why they died.

The only roots come out of the top and go into the ground. There were no small chutes of root nodes or anything like that.

I gave up on it for now and put my time back towards my Mexican Heather. I started with 12 of them 4yrs ago and am up to about 36 of them now.

Nice. I really like growing things. I was wondering if it would work to put the dip of a big plant stem, with aerial roots in a pot of earth, without cutting it. Then, if it grew new leaves you could cut it below or above the roots, or both. Hard to explain. :} There's a name for that technique, I will find it, for when you have everything else done!

You have a similar USDA zone to me, but probably more humid, & more water.
I think I said before that there are lots of them in So. Calif., by the ocean.

Only roses, almonds, walnuts, olives, pistachios & oaks grow here. Yes, to Mexican Heather, though.

Ok. I somewhat understand how to do that. When I was growing sweet potatoes, I noticed that for every 6-10 inches that the vine touched dirt, it would send roots down.

To update this. The plant was leaning over and completely blocking the walkway. I decided to cut it down at ground level. I covered the stump with a little bit of dirt, and it started growing back. I'm good with that, as it's like a whole new, much smaller, plant.
