In order for this passion flower to flower properly, it is important to limit the development of its roots and therefore, ideally, it is preferable to grow it in a large pot. Indeed, if the soil is too light, the roots will develop to the detriment of flowering and fruit production. Severe pruning must also be carried out at the start of winter to guarantee optimal growth the following spring.
Like many passionflowers, it needs moist soil to grow well. It will tolerate drought but to the detriment of its flowering and fruiting.
