Default Passion vines from seed

Is it worth the time to grow passion vines from seed ? Some articles say passion vines grown from seeds may take years to produce flowers. Am I wasting my time trying to grow plants from seeds that will produce flowers and fruit next year ?

I am not sure how long it will take from seed but the vines can be purchased at a very reasonable price and they grow quite fast. Some species grow like weeds! I ordered about 15 species from this supplier Grassy Knoll Exotic Plants grassy knoll exotics. They all arived in very good shape and promptly. I killed about half of them, but that's because I am not the greatest horticulturist! The quality of the plants I received was great and the Lady that runs the website was very helpful. All of the plants flowered with the 1st 6 month and some already had them when they arrived.

Good luck

I bought a passionfruit, and extracted the seeds.

I planted the seeds, in February, in the greenhouse.
Here's one of the seedlings, after several weeks.

Plants were put outside, in May. I had flowers in September.

While getting ready to bring plants back inside, in October, I found fruit.

Fruit was ripe in December, and I was ready to start the cycle over again.

i grow lots of Passiflora love them the are such happy plants its true that some if grown from seed can take up to 3 years to produce fruit but there are others that only take one season iv got a nice link to one of the largest data bases on the net for the culture of Passiflora here is it
Passiflora - Passion flowers - Passion flower

this guy has spent his life growing and studding Passiflora you can ask him any thing and hes always gives good advice although i have rarely had to ask him any thing the data base is so extensive there about 3000 pages worth of material
