Germination of

Passiflora auriculata

Black Passion Fruit Flower, Incense Passionflower, Passiflora foetida.

Passiflora auriculata

Passiflora auriculata is a tropical vine that prefers warm temperatures and high humidity. To germinate the seeds, they should be soaked in water for 24 hours prior to sowing. The seeds should be sown in well-draining soil and kept moist until germination, which typically takes 2-3 weeks. Once the seedlings have developed their second set of leaves, they can be transplanted into individual containers.

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.
