Passion flowers are beautiful green, white, or purple foliage that grow in clusters. They can be tamed and made to contribute beautifully to your home decor. While not everyone enjoys planting them, they are quite popular. These plants are known to promote happiness and help reduce stress.
Many people associate passion flowers with spring due to their bright blooms. But you can plant a passion flower at any time of year! It is never too late to start growing your own set of passiflora.
This article will go over how to care for winter flowering passion fruits. There are two varieties of passion fruit that bear round, fuzzy fruits in the fall and winter. These include ‘Winter Glow’ and 'Santa Claws'.
Find the right spot
Finding the perfect place for your passion plant is important! Plants require direct sunlight, water, and soil to grow effectively. Make sure you have checked out your plant before putting it in its new home.
If you are no longer able to care for it, at least try to re-home it by giving it to a friend or family member that can. Or better yet, pass it onto the next person who loves plants!
Good luck! And keep seeking out your passions - you’ll find them again someday.
Paraphrased, this article was about how to grow a passion flower. It was written for beginners, so do not worry about watering it nor changing the pot size. Just make sure it has adequate light and moisture and give it some time to show off itself.
Prepare the plant
Now that you have your passion flower soil, it is time to prepare it for planting! You will need to add some extra nutrients to ensure the plant grows well.
If your plant does not seem to be growing as quickly as it should, try adding some leafy green material orchid compost along with the soil. This may take some days to see results, but giving it some help can increase growth.
Also make sure to check under the plant to make sure it does not look dry. If it is, pour in a little bit of water to keep it thriving.
Once it has been planted, wait one week at least before exposing it to light so it can get established.
After deciding what type of plant you want to grow, now is the time to prepare the pot for the plant. You will need to find a pot that is a good fit for the plant and get this done before adding any soil or compost in the pot.
If you are buying a new pot, make sure it does not have plastic lids as these could potentially prevent the plant from receiving adequate sunlight and nutrients. An easy way to check if the lid is natural wood is to pull off one edge – if it’s paper thin then its ok!
Once you have found a suitable pot, choose a place where it can receive some direct light and put the pot in the bed. Then, add some more soil (or compost) to the pot and make sure there is no gap at the top of the pot where the roots cannot reach oxygen. This would be an ideal spot for the plant to enjoy!
After planting your passion flower, wait around two weeks until you see small leaves emerging. Once you do, give it some water so it can absorb some of the liquid. As they develop longer hairs, start feeding it with special fertiliser designed just for plants.
Now that you have your plant, it is time to prepare it for winter! First, you will need to find a home for this beauty.
You can either put it in a pot with fresh dirt or directly in the ground. If putting it in a pot, make sure to pick up some type of potting mix and also read about how to care for a passion flower already!
In the spring when it starts to grow again, it will want to climb a trellis or fence. You may have to support it while it grows so do not forget those stakes!
If planting it in the garden, choose an area that has proper drainage and add enough water to keep the surface level low. Make sure there are adequate amounts of sunlight as well.
Put down a support structure
Supporting plants is an important part of every plant owner’s life! This article will talk about how to make this step easy for new plant owners. If you are ever having trouble supporting your plant, check out our tips here!
Another way to learn how to take care of plants more efficiently is by learning how to put up a support system for them. A common supportive material is potting soil. Make sure to mix your own, not use packaged soils that may contain unnecessary additives or chemicals.
Why should you do this? Because those additives help the plant grow faster, but they also cost money in the long run. By making your own, you can control what goes into it and save some cash!
Removing dead roots and washing the plant with fresh water is another good way to care for most plants. When giving away or recycling old plants, be careful not to pull off any parts of the plant while doing so. You don’t want to spread potential disease around through contact with exposed tissue.
Care for your plant
Now that you have your passion flower, here are some tips about how to care for it! The two most important things to know about growing a passion plant is that they do not like water at all and cannot stand direct sunlight.
Passion plants will not thrive if there is too much moisture or direct exposure to light, so make sure to keep them in a relatively dry area and cover or shade them during sunsets and nighttime hours.
Also, remember that passion flowers should be cleaned using a clean, lukewarm distilled water. Never use tap water as this could contain minerals which may cause poisoning.
Enjoy your passion plant
As mentioned before, not all plants that grow in soil are defined as a passion flower. That is why it is very important to identify your plant when you get it!
A professional can help you determine if this particular plant is related to love or money. If its leaves slowly develop white patches like snow, then that would be another clue that it is loved more than once.
If the plant starts to dry out and die down, that is also an indication that it was loved and cared for. On the other hand, if it receives enough sunlight and water, it will thrive and even produce offspring.
This does not mean that it is wrong to care for such a plant, but just make sure you know what kind of plant you have so that you do not hurt it unintentionally.
