Indoor Passiflora caerulea Pruning HELP!

Hi there! I am ecstatic that my Passion Vine just opened a flower today (people, I mean jumping up and down as if I won the lottery-I'm a geek, I know).

I'm creating a "living wall"...really just shaping the vine the way I want up a tall wall in my morning room. My idea is to make it in the shape of a tree, about 2 feet across and as high as it will go. I am using 3 plants potted in one large pot.

Anyway, onto the help-I have noticed several tendrils that seem "crisp" and weak, like they almost could break or I could pull them off as opposed to the bright green strong
tendrils. Should I clip these hard crisper ones off, so the plant can give more nutrients to the healthy tendrils, buds, etc? Or would it harm the plant if I do that?

PS-I have no idea if this cool live wall thing will work, just thought it would be a fun change of pace to try.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I tried the living wall thing with my first passiflora that has since passed away, may it rest in peace. It did wonderfully, but It was hard to keep off my blinds, lol! I am not sure what you mean by crisp, are they still green?
