Thanks Val. I have two more types but I haven't put them in the garden yet. Maybe tomorrow.

Well done growing this from seed :o)

30 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks Tt.
If I can't buy it as a plant....I grow it from seed.

30 Oct, 2011

 

That's a great way to go about things !

Where there's a Will, there's a way. ;o)))

Where there's some flower seed, there's Alex... Lol.

30 Oct, 2011

 

LOL.lol.lol.

One of my aunts suggested I give plants as gifts (that I made from seeds) for the holidays. Not a bad idea, we celebrate name-day's here.....we have a lot of name day's coming up.

That is a beautiful one Alex...How long from seed to flower?

30 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks Pimpernel. I sowed the seeds last December,so roughly just under a year.

30 Oct, 2011

 

Is it the same as the photo on the seeds Alex?

30 Oct, 2011

 

Nope.....this one looks more like Passiflora edulis. I looked it up when I posted the pic.
I want to see if they are all the same flower. I have four planted in the garden.

I had to ask as they can be quite variable apparently.

I know that this is dangerous, but here are some links.............

I am being given seed for Passiflora aurantia I shall have a crack at it.

30 Oct, 2011

 

Oh my my.......

I have seedling growing in pots of Passiflora Temptation and.....an all red one...can't remember the name. I have the envelope in the shop still.

30 Oct, 2011

 

Oh good luck Pimpernel. Keep us informed of your progress.

I had seeds for Passiflora aurantia as well. They didn't germinate for me. I might try again this winter.

30 Oct, 2011

 

The Italian site is rather spectacular isn't it?
I knew that it was dangerous!!!!

30 Oct, 2011

 

You do know this means trouble! There are some amazing ones!!!

Oh I found the name of the others that have germinated..
Passiflora RACEMOSA BUZIOS (not all red after all). Ordered the seeds beginning of summer I think. They are now a good 18inches in height.

Now after seeing this one today....I think I will wait to see the flowers first....then google them and then add the name.

30 Oct, 2011

 

Well done Alex!!...

30 Oct, 2011

 

Gotcha! So little space but so many seeds to buy eh!

31 Oct, 2011

31 Oct, 2011

 

But you should look Tet - there are some stunning SA Iris relatives!
Try these two............

Dont know about irises, but love the dendrobiums, the different coloured Daturas, that lovely lobelia vallida, leonotis and several others...

I have got my seeds just 5 of them and they are smaller than I was expecting, grateful non the less. Now Do you recommend sanding them it looks a bit fiddly ?

1 Nov, 2011

 

Pimpernel, I have three different types that have germinated really easy for me. I just sow them in the soil, water and cover with plastic film. I'm not sure if Passiflora aurantia need soaking in water??? Passiflora aurantia, well they were the ones that didn't germinate for me.

2 Nov, 2011

 

Pimpernel - this is a quote from the second link..........

"To improve germination, lightly sandpaper the seeds on one or both sides using fine sandpaper, then soak them in tepid water for 24 hours. Sow 2-5mm deep in peat or soil based seed compost. Temperature is probably the most important factor in germination, ideally at 20 degrees C (68F) for 16 hours and 30 degrees C (86F) for 8 hours each day. If this is not possible, then a constant temperature of 26 degrees C (79F) is advisable. Using this technique fresh seed germinates in two to four weeks and older seed in four to eight weeks, but 12 to 48 weeks is not exceptional."

It also says that seed that is anything but fresh may have less than a 2% success rate.

Thanks, I have a thermostatic propagator on the way...........48 weeks would be testing my patience a little,
but it will be interesting. I will follow your advice above.

This is the link Pimpernel...........

Is it a fruiting vine?

3 Nov, 2011

 

I will let you know in a few days....

It's a different flower to the picture on the envelope of the seeds!!!
You never truly know what you're going to end up with seeds!

3 Nov, 2011

 

Yes, you'll know very soon if it's going to develop fruit.

Just beautiful!!
