Ik heb de Milettia in 2022 gekocht en hij sloeg al snel aan, qua groei. In december 2022 zakte de temperatuur tot enkele graden onder nul, maar dat heeft hij overleefd. Hij staat tegen een schutting met volop zon vanaf 12 uur. Als beloning is de bloei in september 2023 begonnen. Hij zit vol in het blad en klimt mooi. Prachtige plant en vrij snel bloei! Erg blij mee.
