Sprouting Seeds

Growing Passion Vines from Seeds

The best time to sow Passiflora seeds is in the winter so that you can transplant them into the garden by spring. Passion Vine seeds can be purchased in a packet from a nursery or be taken straight off the fruit. If you use the seeds from the fruit, make sure to wash off excess pulp and then plant them in a seed-starting mix in pots or cups that have holes on the bottom for drainage.

Fill the pots with commercial seed-starting mix or potting soil to about ½ inch from the top of the pot and plant a few seeds in one pot while keeping them a few centimeters apart. Cover them up with the mix and water them generously. Keep the pots in a warm place so that they can sprout, which can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks for seeds fresh from the fruit, and up to a year for seeds that have been stored. During this time, you should keep the soil moist at all times. Bottom heat can accelerate germination and can be achieved by keeping the seed starting tray on top of a refrigerator, above a water heater, or on a commercially available seed starting heating mat.

Once your seeds have sprouted, a good place to put them is on windowsill for sunlight and warmth. Once the seedlings appear and the plants reach about 2 inches (5 centimeters) in height, you will have to repot them into larger pots. Passion vines love to grow upwards; therefore, they may require a support stick. It takes about 12 months for these seedlings to begin flowering.

Before you transplant your Passion Vine plants to your garden, you need to harden off your seedlings. Give your new plants some time to get accustomed to the outdoor climate by setting them outside for a few hours every day, starting in a shady area. Each day, increase the number of hours outside and the amount of sunlight they get, so that they will properly harden off and be ready for the garden. Once the vines are 6 to 8 inches tall, you can transplant them in the garden.

How To Grow Passion Vines

Passion Vines are extraordinary looking plants and are primarily natives of South America. Passion Vines produce what are called Passion Flowers, which are historically and culturally significant. The Passion Flowers were given their name by Catholic missionaries who believed that the characteristics of the flowers resembled that of the Passion of Christ. Over time, many regions including the United States, New Zealand and Africa have begun to cultivate Passion Vines for the fruit, which has become highly commercialized for its fruit quality and health benefits.

Passion Vines come in 400 species which bloom during springtime and some of the varieties that are best for planting include the Passiflora Edulis, Passiflora incarnata, Passiflora alatrocaerulea, and Passiflora vitifolia. You can grow Passion Vines from nursery purchased plants, or grow your own from seeds. To grow these beautiful flowering vines into the healthiest plants, it is important to take proper care of them.

Preparing to Plant

The origins of most Passion Vines have been in frost-free climates, including the Golden (Yellow) Passion fruit and the Purple Passion fruit, which are the most popular ones for consumption across the world. It is a good idea to provide some afternoon shade for the more tropical varieties. These plants are quite notable for their fast growth and their tendency to climb all over the place. Therefore, it is important to plant the seeds near a chain link fence, trellis or some other type of support. This will give the vines something to climb and will give the plants support.

The soil must have good drainage, as soggy roots can rot, killing the vine. Drainage is actually one of the most important aspects of planting Passion Vines so that they are not sitting in soil that is too wet.

To prepare the soil, till in a thick layer of organic material into your planting area. These plants work well with almost any soil but can require fertilizing a few times a year, including early spring when the plants will start to grow. The following sections will provide guidelines on how to either grow Passion Vines from seed, or from nursery plants.
