If were am indoor gardener, living in a temperate climate, and want to grow passion flower indoors, the traditional method is to start seeds in spring, about two months before the last frost. Here’s how to grow them inside in a pot.As mentioned, Passion flowers do best when their roots are constricted so growing them in containers is a great way to do this naturally. The containers should be a little larger than current root ball but in general, a good size pot is better, something around 30-50cm wide depending on how big the root ball is when you purchase the plant. It is best to position the containers in an area where they get full sun or dappled shade where they are protected from cold, drying winds. If you have a wall that faces south or west or any combination of those two it’s the best place for the plants and they should thrive well and have adequate shelter. If you are growing one of the more tender varieties such as Passiflora × exoniensis in your greenhouse or your conservatory just make sure that the leaves have protection against direct sunlight so they don’t get burned.

Welcome to my site, my name is John and I

have been lucky enough to work in horticultural nurseries for over 15 years in the UK. As the founder and editor as well as researcher, I have a City & Guilds Horticultural Qualifications which I proudly display on our About us page. I now work full time on this website where I review the very best gardening products and tools and write reliable gardening guides. Behind this site is an actual real person who has worked and has experience with the types of products we review as well as years of knowledge on the topics we cover from actual experience. You can reach out to me at john@pyracantha.co.uk Of the many types of passionflowers, some are shrubs, annuals, perennials, and even trees. Some also produce edible fruits if they are placed in a pollinator garden. But they all share unusual-looking flowers that remain open for only about a day. In addition to its intricate characteristics, a passionflower has a wide, flat petal base with five or 10 petals in a flat or reflex circle. Passionflowers are rapid growers and are best planted in spring or early fall while it's still warm. The toxicity of the plant varies by type, so check which one you are planting if you have small children or pets.

Alternatively, you can bring your plant indoors and grow it like your houseplants. Since passion flowers need full sun outdoors, you will want to place your plant in the sunniest window in your home. A south-facing window is best. Water regularly to keep it moist as you did when it was outdoors. Our homes are too dry for these plants so you will need to provide humidity for them either by misting them regularly or by creating a humidity tray. Passionflower has a remarkable shape and striking color pattern that makes it unique among flowers. Better yet, this gorgeous plant also produces a delicious fruit. This plant is truly a double threat of the best kind! The best part is, they're easy to grow. While the native range for growing passionflowers stretches from beyond the Ohio River on south to Florida (in fact, all the way south to Brazil), they make excellent container plants for indoor gardens further north.
