I receive a passi in the mail today. It was about 3 1/2 feet long with nice thick vine. The problem is it snapped and broke while I was planting it. How do I root it, and will the root part get another vine. Thanks in advance for helping me.
WAiting for that answer but the best thing is to cut right below a set of nodes, place on heat mat in mostly perlite. Cover with plastic and leave it be. Daily remove lastic to let it breathe but don;t pull it up to look for roots. Hopefully you will see the leaves staying strong that are on it.
Plant the rooted part of your cutting in ordinary potting soil, and care for it as you would any other plant. Keep it moist, not wet and give it a bright light position in your home. Not too much sun for now.
The broken part:
Take cuttings with at least three nodes. Cut one inch below the first node, and one inch above the third node. Put a little rooting hormone on the end of each and stick all of them in a 6" pot. Your soil mix should be 75% perlite mixed with 25% good potting soil. Water ONCE, then wait until the mix feels dry on top. Then, water again.
Don't worry! Ruby glow roots pretty easily!
Did I send this one to you? I'm impower56 on eBay. If it was me, you received a nice, loooong vine and have plenty to work with.
Let me know what happens...
Still on eBay, plus here at Dave's Marketplace.
The only Passiflora I know of that isn't invasive is a Passiflora grown in a pot. They all need room to romp,
For your zone, P. caerulea and Maypops would do, but unless they're in pots, they'll take over your world.
Its in their nature to do so. :-)
