has anyone grown this plant succesfully indoors... my plant is not dead but the new leaves wont open (unfold) and get all tangled and then just die...

Well, I do not have that one, but I did make the mistake of buying some Philos last summer in a weak moment.....the minute I got them I thought wow, what ugly plants.....P. melanochrysum, P. gigas and 1 other unidentified species. They were in lovely condition from a great seller and they did fine outside for the summer of course, but just hate being inside in low humidity.....they look awful and are about to go to the scrap-heap I think....never again will I buy a Philo...jungle vines are not my thing I guess......You likely just have too low a humidity.....keep them moist, but not wet, fertilize with a weak solution every week.....best of luck :D Dan

Yeah, it's probably low humidity, all right. I've had that happen a number of times in winter with other Philos.

That's a wonderful plant when it's doing well, though, IMO. Did you get yours online, or locally? I tried to get hold of one for a while, and finally gave up. I guess most of my best & brightest growing areas are a little dry and cold for viney Philos, though I do love their look.
