No Flowers

My passion fruit plant is doing very well but not giving any flowers. It's 1 year old and about 20ft in length.
Any suggestions or ideas ?
Thanks

RE: No Flowers

If you grew it from seed and it is only one year old, you might have to weight up to a year and a half more before it flowers. However, if you are fertilizing it with too much nitrogen it have good vegetative growth but with no flowering. Adding potasium, often in the form of potash (K2O) will help the vine flower.

I use chopped up banana peels to promote blooms. I just dig a couple spoonfulls into the soil every 4-6 weeks.
