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!
