    can't wait I've got my first giant passion fruit (Passiflora quadrangularis) about to bloom! It's in a heavy wind area so I hope this first one can take it

    I have one that has tomentose leaves, smallish lavender flowers, and bright red pods about the size of a quarter. I can get starts for anyone who might want one.

    I had very poor success in germinating passiflora foetida. i tried garden soil and did not heat the seeds.

    *ahem* Anyhow, soon I'll be mixing some potting mix to plant my seeds in, along with some moonflower seeds I picked up today.
    Quick question: Do passion flower seeds need scarification? A bunch of sources have suggested this, but I'm not about to go slice up my seeds until I know. Thanks!

    *ahem* anyhoo, here is an image of the seed i believe to be passiflora, the others must have come from the soil. my best guess is the passiflora wanted more frequent watering than it received (while the others did just fine)

    just opened Passiflora quadrangularis - aka the Giant Passion Fruit! These can get to be the size of bowling balls! Can't wait to taste the fruit!
