Passion Fruit (Passiflora edulis) at 2 Months
First of all, happy Thanksgiving! I have had a tonne of seedlings updates over the last few days. This is the last one, I promise. I started these seeds from fruit I purchased at a local market. This is probably the most dramatic transformation of all the seedlings. They were growing well outside but as soon as I brought them in the new leaves doubled in size. When I check on them a week later it took me a few seconds to figure out what I was looking at!
Here you can see them just after I moved them outside. They spent about a month outdoors and have been in the UWO greenhouses for about two weeks now. This is not the hardy passion flower and doesn't tolerate cold well. I actually have 6 pots worth but these plants are much easier to photograph individually. Hopefully within a few months I'll be growing some fruit of my own!
