i have just re-potted my passionflower and a long piece has snapped right off the end. if i take off the lower leaves and stick the end of it into the soil will the broken off piece grow? and will it harm the main plant that the long piece snapped off?

On plant Passiflora caerulea



Louise, I would put the stem in water to grow roots, before potting it up. As for the main plant, Passionflowers stump sprout enthusiastically, so there shouldn't be any trouble with it.

Thanks T, it is now in a glass on the kitchen windowsill. I was very upset, not had the plant long and it was given to me by a friend as a 'thank-you' gift. Maybe I'll end up with two plants instead and will have had nothing to be upset about!

How do I say thanks?
