Seemann's Passion Fruit Flower: Red passionflower, Passiflora coccinea

Passiflora seemanii

Passiflora seemanii: Passiflora seemanii seeds can be tricky to germinate, but following a few steps can help to ensure success. Start by soaking the seeds in warm water for 24 hours before planting them in a well-draining potting mix. After planting, cover the container with plastic wrap to create a humid environment and place it in a warm location with temperatures between 70-80�F. It is important to maintain high humidity during the germination period, so misting the container regularly can help. Germination can take up to several months, so patience is key.

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.
