 Is Passiflora Quandrangularis self-fertile?

Passiflora Quandrangularis is a self-fertile plant. That means that it can be grown from seeds and does not need pollination from another plant to set fruit. When the flowers have finished blooming and the fruit has formed, they all ripen at the same time. This helps to ensure that no one flower falls prey to insect attacks or other problems, as there will always be another flower nearby with which to pair up with.

How do I prune Passiflora Quandrangularis?

The plant does not need to be pruned regularly and should only be pruned if it shows signs of leaf damage. The plant does not need to be in a specific shape, just left in an aesthetically pleasing position. To maximize the display of flowers, the best time to prune is after you have picked all the fruit from the plant. Pruning is best done during the spring months when it is warm. The following are the steps to follow when pruning;

  • Prune off damaged, brown or yellow leaves that have no chance of survival
  • Cut the stems of flowers that have already finished blooming
  • Remove dead and diseased wood
  • If a stem is flowering, cut it back to a leaf that is still healthy and then remove one or two more leaves further up the stem (These will help to promote the growth of new branches)
  • If a stem is not flowering, remove it and prune the leaves at the same time
  • If you notice that your plant is growing too tall and you want to keep it small, then you can also prune off the main stem and allow the growth of new branches to develop. This should be done in order to keep the plant in the desired shape.
