Q.My Passion Fruit Vine Is Dying
My passion fruit vine has been growing beautifully for almost 3 years, until now. I live in Finland, have kept it indoors at all times. It sits in a window where it has light but not direct sunlight. I used to have it in a small pot and fertilize with citrus tree firtilizer during the summer months. We moved to a new place this summer, and at the same time I put it into a self watering pot with a mix of soil, sand and bark. It was doing fine at first but now as the winter came and days got darker (a couple of hours daylight/day here) it started withering away. Some leaves fall right off, some dry up, some turn yellow. The climbing things, tentacles or whatever to call them, also dry up and turn brown. It stopped growing. Until now it had a radiator next to it, so it has heat from there and cold from the window, so I moved it further inside the room to keep from draught. What can I do? Not many growing these around here so no one to ask..

Plants generally don't like to be moved. It may be going through some shock with the move and less light. Also, make sure it is a safe distance from any heating vents. Those will dry it out right away. You might consider an LED grow light or fluorescent bulbs. It likely isn't getting enough light. Make sure it isn't getting too much or too little water. Also pinch off any yellow or brown growth.
