Passifloras to wilt when transplanted? I dug one up that was outside to bring in for the winter and it has wilted terribly. I don't know if it will recover or not. I think it was P. edulis flavicarpa. I also have a ? P. maliformis that I need to dig up and am afraid I will kill it when I do. The winter will kill it also so I don't guess it matters if I kill it by digging it up.

Any way to prevent the wilting?

As long as you are digging far enough down and around the roots, it will be fine. You probably just shocked it. How about using a transplanting liquid which should help with shock.

Yes, I thought about that. I has been dug a week now and it is starting to perk back up. It lost several leaves but not as many as I thought it would. I have 2 more to dig up and I will use the transplant stuff on them to help with the shock. I think next year I will just grow them in pots and save all this shock to them.

Will it hurt to trim them back for the winter? P. coriacea just started blooming so I hated to cut it back to bring in.

This is my 1st year to worry about them so I will probably have lots of questions.

I am in the process of working on cutting mine back. They have gotten so big them are overtaking each other. I am going to cut them back so they are each maybe only 13-15 feet but then I don;t know. I figure, 1. they need to breathe again but then 2. if it gets cold in February, if they are full like this, they might keep each other warm. LOL

Kinda hard to decide what is the right thing to do. Gardening seems to be trial and error sometimes.
