P. Gracilis

Does anyone out there grow Gracilis?

I'd like to.. Have managed to get a few seeds, but they don't seem to want to sprout. I thought if I got more then I might have a better chance, but...

Do they need to be stratified or something? Am I missing some "they won't sprout if" gem of knowledge?

Guess I did something right, or just wished hard enough... I'm the proud daddy of 2 gracilis sprouts.

RE: P. Gracilis

I've got 4 now- All are about 6" tall.

I understand they're an annual (apparently the only one among the passiflora, uniqueness of which drew me to the plant in the first place) altho they're placed in the decaloba subspecies.

Being a decaloba.. I wonder if crosses among the family are possible? Anyone out there ever tried?

RE: P. Gracilis

They're barely 6" tall & I see flower buds already. (pix later)
