Q.Passion Fruit Vines hooked on to one another? Idk what to do

Zone Trinidad & Tobago | Jon-Paul added on March 27, 2019 | Answered

Hi, so I just came back from school and went to check on my plants as I normally do, only to find out that two of my (yellow variation) passion fruit vines hooked on to one another. I was supposed to move the vines to the back of my house to grow there, except its not ready yet for any plants (I still need to set up walls/troughs to hold the dirt). Should I leave my passion fruit vines like this or should I untangle/cut them and keep them far away from one another? Also how deep do passion fruit vines need to be, because my pot I’m temporarily keeping them in is 10-12inches tall and I’d say bout 7-8 inches wide. For reference, I’ve attached a picture of this…phenomenon…

You can just untangle them when you are ready to plant them. There is no harm in breaking those tendrils, as they will just grow new replacements.

You will plant them up to the depth that they are now. Make sure not to go too much further than you have them now in soil. Try and plant them at the same level, or as close as possible.
