I found it growing at the bottom of the garden so I transferred it to a plastic ice cream carton.

Then it kept growing, so I joined 3 cartons together.

Now one branch just won't stop growing. I wonder if it's looking for something?

That branch has even put out roots:

Looks very much like a Dragonfruit. But  miniature. 

Thanks very much! 👍  I've seen the fruit, but didn't realise what the plant looked like.

I'll put it back at the bottom of the garden and let it rip!

I've seen them being farmed in Vietnam and they put them on the top of concrete posts.  I assume being up on something means they grow more fruit as they hang down?  Might be worth thinking about putting it on something raised.

Interesting stuff.  I'd say you've got the makings of a nice little project there.

If I can be ars bothered... I'll certainly let you know if it comes to fruition.  (Geddit??  'fruition' - 'passion fruit' - har, har!)
