Passiflora Coccinea is native to South America; Bolivia, Brazil (Amazonian), Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela. It climbs by means of clinging tendrils and can be kept as an container plant. The long tendrils need lots of support for climbing. It may be grown as a houseplant in a sunny South-facing window. It is grown for its large, vivid red flowers, rather than for its fruit. Plants can have flowers for much of the year but are seen at their peak in Summer and Autumn. Passiflora Coccinea is a strong growing, evergreen climber with dark green leaves. The entire, oblong leaves are 2-5 inches long and 1-2 inches large. Pruning is a must to keep the vine healthy. Prune off less vigorous growth and occasionally prune back vigorous growth to promote flowering. Exotic, tropical, and loves warm weather. 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.
