Bringing out my passifloras

pepcanMay 8, 2007

I have 2 passifloras that I bought last year and continued to grow them in containers. Brought them inside and treated as houseplants for the winter.

Now that the weather is getting to the point where I can put outside on my balcony I'm not sure what to do with them.

I would like to re-pot them and I purchased pieces for them to climb. Do I or can I cut them back and they will be fine? They seem very healthy I've even had blooms from the X-Belotii. The other is a Caerulea "ClearSky".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I also grow my passies inside under lights during the winter. As long as your temps are in the 40's or higher at night they should be fine. Repot in a well draining mix. I only trim the stems that look ratty or ones that I want to root. Just make sure when your prune them to leave a few viable leaf nodes to produce new growth.

Thanks Karyn
They will be in pots so if it gets chilly at night I'll be sure to bring them inside.
Thanks again
