Hi Gabe,
you're right of course. Thanks for pointing out.
It was M. itinerans with the violet fruit and stems.
Yes they are running like Bamboo, but I have a lot of space, so no problem there.
They get close to 40ft in the forest. The more shady they are, the higher they can get.
So I plan to grow them in a coconut grove under a 100ft coconut canopy, so I assume they will grow taller that way too.
Will get my M. ingens seeds next month and if I ever get any seedlings, I will try to grow them in a shady condition too.

Cheers, Martin
