Passiflora foetida has now spread throughout the tropics in America, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. Fast-growing vine, particularly in warm, wet, tropical regions. It climbs by means of clinging tendrils and can be kept as an container plant. The long tendrils need lots of support for climbing. A must for any collection. This is a very variable species; the flower color can be pink, white, blue, or purplish. In the wild the plant blooms from June to September, however the bloom period will probably be extended when cultivated in the greenhouse. Flowers are about 2 1/2 inches wide. The leaves have a strong scent when touched. Pruning is a must to keep the vine healthy. Prune off less vigorous growth and occasionally prune back vigorous growth to promote flowering. A very vigorous plant. You may need to water your plants on a daily basis during the hottest Summer months. During the Winter the roots should be kept moist, but as growth will be much slower you will probably only need to water once a week, depending on growing temperature. It will do best in a loam based mix with a little peat moss. Fertilize at least once every two weeks in the growing season. A suitably sized pot for an adult plant would generally be of 12 inches in diameter.
