Hi all

I got a packet of Passiflora seeds and tried growing them - after a month of sitting in a mini-greenhouse - here's what i got - out of the 12 little pellets with 3 seeds on each - only 1 plant emerge and I'm not even sure if this is a Passiflora at all. Any help will be highly appreciated although I am willing to wait and see if this plant grows to what it should be.

Eileen, it does look like a Passiflora. Don't give up, I have litterally had seeds pop up months later. Sometimes too, I've had a bunch all of the sudden, pop up after like 2 or 3 months so if you have room, don't give up on them.
