    I have some morning glory seedlings and was just reading how they're very similar to sweet potato vines. I have pothos and potatoes growing out of the top of my tank (among a few other plants) and was thinking how pretty the morning glory would be and beneficial since they are supposed to grow like a weed. I know they need sun to bloom but would a light be enough for it to bloom inside?

    if that is the case it depends on the light and how long it is on but i would love that if you could good luck hopefully someone more experienced with this stuff will chime in

    When I looked it up, the light requirements were said to be "full sun, or slight shade", so it seems like it would depend on how much light (natural + artificial) you provide. People grow every kind of plant under artificial light (checkout hydroponic lights), but they get into some seriously bright and expensive lights. Sorry, I don't have anything truly useful to add other than it is certainly possible to grow inside if you're willing to provide enough light. The question is, how much is enough?

    I assume the vine will grow at least. They have pretty leaves so I suppose it would be very similar to a pothos only faster growing. But if I could get it to bloom inside would be awesome. I'll probably try a couple to see what happens. I've got 25 seedlings so....
