Cool! Are you going to try some in a tank? If so keep me posted, as I have always wanted to do it but never got around to expeimenting with them. If you don't mind me asking, where are you getting it from?
Thats cool! Did you plant them originally or something? If so, and they winter over they might not like the constant level conditions of a terrarium... but you never know and I am surely not an expert on these plants lol. If you ever have any extra seeds or something I may be interested in some. Feel free to PM or email me. Thanks and good luck.
Once it fruits ill prolly beable to send some. No fruit now, but hasnt been there a whole year yet, came in the middle of winter. I" think a bird dropped seeds there somehow. At a statepark it grows wild also. Its pretty hardy from what i have seen. At first i ripped it down thinking it was another pesty ivy of some sory, but then it flowered and i fell in love!
It is a pretty flower. I doubt it will do well in a viv because of the high light requirement and because it is a temperate species. It is common in fields, edges and disturbed habitats through out the Southeastern US. There are several tropical species i see for sale regularly in my area, they may be a better choice.
To bring this back from the dead...how bout P. caerulea?
We've got a vine in the backyard that is maybe 7 ft high and is flowering. That should be manageable viv size for large vivs especially if it branches or borders the top but it will take up a lot of space. Guess you'd have to trim alot though?
Guessing that would be Passiflora incarnata(Maypop). Flowers should be brilliant red.
I think if no one is up to trying Passiflora in a viv I might go first...but would need to get a cutting to try. Also, it'd need to be a Costa Rican species to fit with my current attempt to make a biotope.
