My Cyphostemma juttae survived gophers,then me.

As you can see- it had at one time been gophered. It then regrew ( I wondered why 2 years ago it skipped near a summers growth) and then yesterday, while I was pulling the Red Maurelii banana's leafs off,I scooped the pile and walked away. Well,I guess one leaf base had caught the Cyphostemma and it just yanked right out of the ground.
Thats when I see where it had been cropped by Gopher teeth then grew a few longer new roots. Not enough to hold it down in the now wet soils. I dont want to pot grow it- its not fat enough so,I guess try and put it in ground someplace and put wire fencing under it. At least give a few years of gopher free rooting. I hope.
