This plant was started in a pot. Once I planted in the ground, it just took off. It is now on the fence, it has several blossom and two fruit. I would like to know to cut it for more plants?

fun to grow
Reviewed By: Joelle (Bolingbrook, IL)
I wish I could add a picture, it is so pretty. It comes as a small plant, then, when planted in the ground, it gets a little bigger, develops buds, which turn into pods and then one day it blooms. The petals look more white than green. I know I live in a climate where this might be an annual, but I might get motivated to dig it up and bring it inside.

Very fast growth
Reviewed By: A M (Sebring, FL)
I bought this plant last year and it grew quickly, grew 3 flowerheads that dropped off before bloom. This year it has an abundance of flower heads, which bloom 2 at a time. I am eagerly awaiting fruit. I planted against the front of my house on a trellis, with morning sun, evening shade. It did not die back at all even in the severe 2010 winter freezes. Love it!

What A Beauty !!
Reviewed By: TED (Bryan, TX)
I have had my passion flower planted in the ground now for two years. I can't get over how well it has been growing. I haven't eaten any of the fruit for simply wasn't for sure when to harvest them. I found a red flower that I should of ordered when I saw it, but can't remember who had it. I am always sharing my plant with all the new vines that keeps sprouting all over the place.

Disappointed
Reviewed By: Daniel G (Milwaukee, WI)
The plant itself came in good shape and I had no problem getting it to grow. I am growing as a container plant with a trellis and it seems to like it. It grows fast and so trains very easily. I am disappointed because the variety I bought was advertised as having a blue and green flower. Unfortunately, the plant just flowered this week and the resulting flower was clearly purple.

watch carefully for the fruit
Reviewed By: Candace R (Asheville, NC)
I love this plant & currently have it in a pot. I first noticed it would bloom once only. At first, I just tore off the retired bloom. Then, I threw them back in the pot. A few days ago when I was waiting for 1 to be soft enough to tug off, I realized the fruit was starting to bloom. Now, it's about 3 days old & the size of a kumquat. Also, the skin is green. There's a new one sprouting in the pot now and another fixing to sprout the fruit. I don't see any another areas ready to bloom the flower.

Reviewed By: Lori (Ladson, SC)
Very Pretty in bloom. Very invasive...We have removed it's offspring for 7 years and they still grow everywhere. Some plants grow 10 feet away. Neighbors with great lawns are not so welcoming of this plant. Be careful you have it for life!

Healthy youngster
Reviewed By: Candace (Williamsport, PA)
I was realy impressed by the condition the vine was in when it arrived. It was very green with little curly tendrils. The base of the plant was well cultivated. I have this in a pot on my enclosed patio. Everyday it grows a little more despite the weather being unpredictable. I do have to spray it once in a while for pests. I use an indoor plant pesticide and do it sparingly and so far it is well tolerated . I am very excited to see it bloom, the vine itself is interesting!

Beautiful WHEN it Blooms
Reviewed By: Elizabeth (Cheyenne, Wyoming)
I love the bloom on this plant - when it blooms. And I can't get it to produce any fruit either! I have this plant in my bathroom for the humidity, which has a large sunwindow facing the south. It blooms every 2 months, one or two blooms, but won't produce fruit. I think it's beautifull when it blooms, but the blooms fall off after about 1 week and it just takes so long to get it to bloom again. Very frustrating!

Christs Passion
Reviewed By: Tuetipp (Denison, Tx)
I first encountered the awesome Passiflora when I lived in Calif. The mild winters there allowed it to survive as a barky vine above ground year round, but in Tx the vines dry up and die off above ground, only to return the next spring. I harvest the dozen new runners that spring up around my yard each year and share this marvelous plant with family and friends.I have many blooms that reach the size of my hand easily. Not sure if thats because its the Exotica version (curly filaments) or not.I just know its an awesome little vine.

do's and don'ts
Reviewed By: pat Chandler (bowie, texas)
What a gorgeous wonderous plant this is...I planted six of these vines around a wrought iron gazebo; they grew quickly and covered the gazebo in one spring, producing hundreds of exquisite flowers that closed at nite and opened at first light..My friends and neighbors were amazed as was I..But alas, on a really hot day, the iron gazebo got extremely hot, and the plants withered and supposedly died! I was broken hearted! However, the following spring, the plants returned, and the story repeated itself. I should have removed the plants and placed them in a safer place, but my life was too hurried at the time..so, may I suggest to everyone, choose a wise place to plant your passion flowers and you will indeed have a spiritual journey that will not end as mine did..you know, the passion flower is linked to the theological icon of the passion of Christ on the cross. Check out some of the reviews, and good luck. Hope my experience has enlightened a few, and you will all have a beautiful experience with the passion flower. What an exquisitely beautiful flower it is! Take care, Pat Chandler

when i was young
Reviewed By: teresa (Coos Bay, Oregon)
I lived on the Oregon coast at Coos Bay, Oregon when I was growing up. We moved into a house that now would be 170 years old. It had the God's Eye, or Passion flower vine growing up over the roof of the house every summer. I never noticed the fruiting though. I am thrilled to see that it still exists and I am anxious to try it in my garden.

DELICIOUS
Reviewed By: Yuisa ("Billings,", MT)
I haven't buy this plant from here, but I do have 2 that I grew from seeds brought from Puerto Rico....Jesse, you are so right....the fruit is delicious, and the juice is wonderful !! I grew up drinking this juice, and eating the fruits, and they are NOT only great, they do help to lower down high blood pressure, relax, and a lot of other benefits... Good news is that NOT only the fruit is edible, but the plant as well....you can dry leafs, smash them and make tea out of them, and get the same benefits that you get from eating the fruit or drinking the juice!! Enjoy!!!

The fruit is edible
Reviewed By: Heidy (Arica, Chile)
What looks like a lime growing out of the flower is its fruit, and when matured (must luck wrinkle and much), the passion fruit you buy in the supermarket 1 for $3, so, next time give it time to mature,(cut in half and spoon the seeds) you get the amount of vitamin C in one passion fruit what you need with 6 oranges..

I ordered one last spring. It was amazingly fast growing, beautiful. But then it died when I went on vacation. I guess it was hidden by the other plants and got overlooked when my friend came to water. I plan on ordering another someday, because I was very satisfied with it before it died.
