  1. Hi Stephen,
    An academic question: is Hablitzia a scrambler, twiner, tendril climber or which other method does it use to climb?
    Thanks, Lieven

    1. Hi Lieven;
      That’s a good question!
      I would say it’s in between a twiner and a tendril climber. It seems to use the leaf petioles as a kind og tendril together with the heart shaped leaf to hang on to branches. It needs a rough surface and fails to climb up bamboo.
      I just remembered you’d sent me a FB message…will answer soon!
