giant granadilla won't bloom

romando(9b/10a , sunset 17)April 9, 2005

Hello. I love passion flowers, and have several, including lavender lady, citrina, mollisima, stribing red, and a fucshia one I can't remember the name of. All bloom beautifully, with the exception of my giant granadilla. I've had it nearly two years, it grows, is a healthy green, and puts out new growth regularly. It was in full sun for most of its life with me, but I've since moved it to a part sun location to see if anything would change. Anyway, it has never bloomed. I'm not sure why. It receives the same care as my others which thrive, but doesn't reward me!! What can I do?

I forgot to mention (important, I assume) that I am a balcony container gardener. It's in a 5 gallon plastic container. It's about 5-6 feet tall, trained on a teepee type trellis within the pot, situated against a wall it can further climb upon as needed.

Hey. I know this is an old thread. I am just wondering if your Giant Granadilla ever bloomed or if anyone else knows how long it takes for this plant to bloom.

I grew mine from seed, it bloomed in it's second year. It is now about 4 years old, and this year really went crazy. It has blooms and fruits on it right now. Mine is grown in the ground, in mostly sandy soil, and receives strong morning sun and no afternoon sun. It's doing beautifully. Over 40 feet
of vine, which I rarely cut back.
