DescriptionThis plant is potentially a great addition to any coastal green roof design.  With its ability to grow into the salt water, withstand extreme heat, drought tolerant and inorganic soil media loving characteristics, railroad vine is a potentially great choice for many tropical, coastal green roof projects.Railroad vine is propagated by stem cuttings, seed, and tissue culture. Does best in dry, nutrient-poor, sandy soils, but can also tolerate moist or calcareous soils.Cuttings are generally faster and easier, and they have a higher transplant survival rate than plants produced from seed. Cuttings should be planted directly into a well-drained substrate with at least one node buried. Cuttings usually root within 7 to 10 days when grown under mist. To avoid rotting, cuttings should be removed from the mist to harden off as soon as they are rooted and may be transplanted to individual pots when roots are sufficiently developed. Gardeners can place cuttings to root in pots or directly into the ground and hand-water them until roots are well-developed. Seeds must be abraded or scarified before they will germinate.
