    Looks great!

    Arrived in good condition, packaged with 3 other plants. Transplanted in sandy Florida soil right away and it seems to be taking off :)

    This plant is very tough.

    Despite not giving it the right humidity, lower temperatures, not providing it a trellis, and insects attacking, the Passion fruit vine is still putting out new leaves. I cannot wait for fruit to come in, and I am so happy I did not have to start from seed. I would recommend getting this plant.

    Healthy Plants!

    Arrived healthy. I had 2 from sow exotic from a couple years ago that did very well and grew HUGE. I unfortunately killed them when I cut them back too far to paint our home. Plants were packed well but came loose during transit, likely the post office mishandling the package as the other plants in the box were fine.
