Germination of

Passiflora sp.

Passion Flower (genus), Maypop, Purple Passion Vine

Passiflora sp.

Passiflora, commonly known as passionflower, is a genus of climbing plants with over 500 different species. To germinate passionflower seeds, start by soaking the seeds in warm water for 24 hours to help soften the seed coat. Next, fill a seed tray or a pot with a well-draining soil mix and sow the seeds on the surface of the soil. Cover the seeds with a light layer of soil and water gently. Place the tray or pot in a warm, bright location, but out of direct sunlight. Passionflower seeds can take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks to germinate, so be patient and keep the soil consistently moist.

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.
