I have some seeds of Hablitzia tamnoides and thought it might be worth trying to grow it as a house plant, either in a hanging pot with the vines hanging down, or in a pot on the floor with a trellis for it to climb. I love the idea of an edible, shade loving house plant. Has anyone tried this? Is the plant toxic to cats at all?

It does fine up here in zone 5 Maine, so zone 7 should be a piece of cake Errol.
I've never tried it as a house plant though I'm very interested in edible house plants, so I'm hoping to find out if this one is an option. I overwinter some plants in my unheated sunroom so having edible house plants that can handle dips below freezing is a criteria for me.

I have never tasted it, is it good? I grew Malabar spinach once, and I don't know if it was the climate I was growing it in (desert) or the plant itself, but it had a sticky funky texture, and I wasn't inclined to eat it. So the Caucasian Spinach I'd love data on the taste before I try it.
