    Descriptif de la plante

    Le mot de Rayon de Serre

    beautiful tropical vine , as fragrant as it is tasty!
    Here is the Winged-stem passion flower, also called Fragrant Grenadilla, because of its large fragrant flowers, beautiful red stars that hang all along the stems. We recognize the Winged-stem passion flower by the small hooks present on the sepals of its flowers. It is provided with tendrils, which enables it to hang on any support!
    Its delicious tropical fruits have a sweet, slightly acid taste, they can be eaten as they are with a spoon, or in sorbet, punch, arranged rum...
    This Passion flower fears the frost, but is easily cultivated in pot to be brought back in the warmth in winter.
    In order to favour the blooming, choose a rather small pot: feeling in "danger", it then starts to emit numerous fruits to resow itself. Its flowers are hermaphroditic, but the presence of several plants or another variety of Passion flower at its side is required to give fruits. 
    To do so, you can choose among the other passifloras included in our collection :
    - the classic, but so delicious Passiflora edulis f. edulis (Passion fruit )
    - the less known but as good Passiflora edulis f. flavicarpa (Yellow passion fruit)
    - the spectacular Passiflora manicata ( Red passion fruit)
    - the original Passiflora mollissima (Banana passionfruit)

    Growing tips

    Repotting

    Repotting

    When you receive your plant, repot it in a pot slightly larger than the bucket, which must be well pierced. Avoid pot covers which prevent residual water from draining away and encourage fungal diseases. Choose a fine potting soil, ideally with added perlite or sand to lighten the substrate (do not use garden soil or acidic soil such as heather). Then plan two repottings per year (spring and autumn), gradually increasing the size of the pot and adapting it to the size of the root network (the roots must have room, but not too much as the plant must be able to dry out its substrate between waterings). This avoids having to add fertilizer, which always risks burning the fragile roots of the plants and making the plant wither as soon as the fertilizer is stopped.

    Watering

    Watering

    Moderate watering: watering should be copious (the whole root ball should be wet), but wait until the substrate has dried deeply before watering again (you can stick your finger in the soil: as long as you feel moisture, do not water). Your plant will recover better from a lack of water than from an excess of water. Always water at the base of the plant, and do not mist it, because stagnant water in the armpit of the leaves favors cryptogamic diseases. If your atmosphere is too dry, put bowls of water nearby (above radiators for example), so that evaporation humidifies the air.

    For an outdoor planting

    For an outdoor planting

    This plant is not frost and/or cold resistant and should not be planted outside except in limited parts of Southern Europe.

    Pruning

    Pruning

    This plant is very easy to prune, which will make it branch out.

    Fertilizer

    Fertilizer

    Our plants are grown naturally, without chemical fertilizers, so we advise you to repot them regularly (twice a year) rather than adding fertilizer.

    In case of pest attack

    In case of pest attack

    If your plants are under attack by aphids or other pests, the best way to control them is by hand. Change their soil, remove as many undesirables as possible by hand and then shower your plants with a strong stream of water to eliminate any eggs that may be present. Spray them (insist on the underside of the leaves) with liquid black soap diluted in water. Repeat the operation several times at a few days interval. Take them outside in good weather, rain, sun and wind will kill most of the aggressors!
