Re: I'm glad I caught your post!
Jade Pothos sounds like it fits the description of that vine!
UF definitely has some cool finds. Until last year they had a huge papaya tree (it died in the cold last winter). It must have survived several years in it's location near a tall building.
If you're ever close by, Kanapaha Botanical Garden and Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens are great places to check out. Both botanical gardens play it safe with their palm choices, but are beautiful spots!
UF definitely has pushed the limits for plant selections by McCarty Hall. They're growing pretty much every palm I could think of wanting to try in a zone 9a without any cold weather care that I'm aware of. UF in general is much palmier than the rest of town mostly because a lot of people in North Florida prefer oaks over palms.
