What am I supposed to do now?

This is how big my plant has gotten now. Just look at this thing! I've already run out of stalk for it to climb up.

I don't understand why it's not growing more leaves. I see a few leaf buds, a couple of leaflets, even. But mostly it's just making more and more vine. Not enough sunlight, maybe?

I've tried moving it to a sunnier location (the middle of my bedroom floor, very awkward), but I still don't think it's enough. My apartment just does not get that much sun.

Would it help if I nipped the terminal bud off?

Yup! Go ahead and cut it down to size; that will stimulate lateral, rather than just vertical, growth.

Oh buggrit... I seem to have killed it. I don't know how or why. Maybe I had it on the window ledge too near the stove and the steam from my cooking wilted it. *sigh*
