First off I must say that I am not trolling, I am genuinely interested in growing this plant.
I understand what risks I am taking by trying to grow this invasive and dangerous plant, but I have taken quite an interest in it.
Obviously severe rashes are a risk, the plant, roots and stem are filled with the rash causing oils which means any mistake or improper handling wouldn't bode well for me as I am allergic to it.
You may think I am crazy and truth be told I probably am, this plant has caused me torment for many years as a kid.
My reason for growing this plant are because it is actually quite beautiful, from it's Green and Purple leaves to the hairy vine it's quite intriguing.
What is the best way to get it started? I have identified at least 10 poison ivy vines around my home and have noticed several instances of seed like pods growing from the 3 leaves; could I harvest these seeds and plant them? Or could I just take part of the plant put it into the dirt and it grow that way?
I do know the vine is very hardy and can handle many different weather conditions so it shouldn't be too hard to get it started.
Just so you know, I will be growing this in a pot, I have no interests in spreading this plant around for malicious intent. The suffering this plant can bring to people is something I don't want anyone to experience.
