Q.Pot Size For Passion Fruit Vine

Zone 10001 | Cjj44 added on April 13, 2022 | Answered

I thought I posted this before but it doesn’t seem to have gone thru, so apologies if I posted it twice!. For a passionfruit vine (edulis), going into its third year, indoors, is a 12″ wide by 10″ high (5 gallon?) pot adequate, or should I pot it up. If so, what size pot should be adequate? Thank you!

It did come through. Here is the answer that I posted:

I wouldn't move it until you see roots coming out of the drainage holes, and roots start circling the container. They will fruit better being slightly root-bound. You should be able to pull the entire thing as one mass, when it is dry. If the soil ball starts falling apart, then it is not fully colonized. If it is time to move it, then opt for a container that is a few inches larger on each side. Anything larger and you risk causing root rot from too much uncolonized soil. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/passion-flower/passion-fruit-vines-in-pots.htm https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/passion-flower
