Propagation of Passiflora sp. by cuttings


#1

I moved one of our large Passiflora ‘Purple Tiger’ today (a hybrid of P. phoenicea ‘Ruby Glow’ and P. quadrangularis.) It had become entangled and had begun climbing our house. I finally decided to give it a proper home in the ground. I was as careful as I could be, seeing how it was absolutely LOADED with flower buds but I did end up knocking off a lot of them. I also cut away some of the vines and ended up with close to about 100 six-inch cuttings :open_mouth:
Question is, can these root in water? Or will these need the ol’ rooting hormone/soil method.


#2

Water works. I rooted a few cuttings this way. Be sure to change the water often. YouTube has some good tutorials.


#3

I’d do rooting hormone…but why not experiment with both and tell us which was best?


#4

I’ve successfully rooted P. incarnata in just water, but I assume rooting hormone would work better.

Of course, with that many cuttings, you can afford a few losses.


#5

I didn’t know i could use only whater… i plant mine. Just hope they root!


#6

I’ve gotten Caerulea to root in water…

I’ve not gotten Lavender Lady or Capsularis to root that way, though.
