Unless you are growing chocolate vine as a ground cover, it will need a sturdy structure to support it as it climbs. If you wish to harvest the fruits of the vine, plan to plant at least two vines to increase the chances of pollination and fruiting.
Because of chocolate vine's vigorous growth habit, frequent pruning is required to keep it in check. Many gardeners' prune chocolate vine back to ground level in late winter to keep it in check.
Prefers partial sun/shade
