Very Fun

Hello again!

I think I mentioned I am trying to grow passion flower from seed. After all my other seedlings have started producing their second leaves and nothing was happening with the passion's seeds, I did some reading and to my surprise, it sometimes takes up to 12 months to grow the plant from seed. Realizing it's time to sit back and wait, that is just what I did. So while carting around the many seed trays with all the other plants; into the morning sun and back into the warm house at night, I also carried these seeds around, pretty much ignoring what was inside.

Well, over the weekend I paid attention to the 16 sod pod tray and couldn't believe my eyes! Less than one month later and I have a little baby plant growing! Right into a large flower pot this little baby's gonna go! I may just sink it now and lug that planter inside and out!

This is cool! So excited to see it grow. Has a growing height of 30 feet although I will cut it down this fall, when I bring it in for the winter (as recommended). I wonder if I'll have to wait until next year or the year after to see some flowers on the more mature plant?
