Germination guide
Passiflora coccinea seeds will usually germinate in 30-365 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Sow seeds about 6mm deep in a Peaty seed sowing mix at about 20-30C.

Soak in warm water, which should be changed daily. Most seeds swell up when they are soaked, those that do should be sown immediately. Seeds that don't swell can be gently scarified.

Give the seed container an occasional soaking.
