How to Grow Passion Vines From Cuttings

Save

Passion vines can be grown from seeds or from stem cuttings. It is more common to root cuttings for propagation. Passion vines grown from cuttings are hardier than vines grown from seeds. Cuttings should root in three to four weeks.

Things You'll Need

  • Rooting compound
  • Scissors
  • Mature passion vine
  • Sphagnum moss
  • Peat moss
  • Vermiculite
  • Perlite
  • Potting soil
  • 6-inch pot
  • 1 gal. plastic bag
  • Place a 1-inch layer of sphagnum moss in the bottom of a 6-inch pot. Combine one part peat moss, one part perlite, one part vermiculite and one part potting soil. Mix thoroughly and place in the pot. Wet the soil mixture and allow excess water to drain through the holes in the bottom of the pot.

  • Cutting at a 45-degree angle, remove a 3- to 4-inch stem from a mature passion vine just below a leaf node. Remove the lower leaves and all flower buds from the cutting, moisten it and dip it in rooting compound. Coat the entire end of the cutting thoroughly with rooting compound.

  • Put the cutting into the moistened potting mixture in the pot. Cover the pot with a plastic bag and put it in a warm location with indirect sunlight. Keep the pot covered with the bag to maintain a humid environment.

  • Remove the plastic bag and transplant the vine once the root system has become established. Add a small trellis or other support system to allow the vine to grow upward.
