Winged-Stem Passion Fruit Flower: Passiflora Alata, Winged Passion Flower, Fragrant Granadilla, Perfumed Passion Fruit

Passiflora alata

Passiflora alata seeds also require a warm temperature for germination, around 70-80�F (21-27�C). It is recommended to soak the seeds in warm water for a few hours before sowing. The seeds should be sown 1/4 inch deep in a well-draining seed starting mix and kept moist. Covering the pot with plastic wrap or a humidity dome can help maintain moisture levels.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
