Re: No fruit from passionfruit grown in pots

Thanks @woodenwookie I have transferred to larger pots, there is two plants, they are trellised and have completely covered the area they have been trellised for.  Lovely green lush leaves and growth, just no flowers, no fruit.

@Tricia1, no as mentioned in my original post, no flowers for nearly 2 years now. Lots of lush green growth, no flowers 😕

Re: No fruit from passionfruit grown in pots

Have you tried using some potash or something similar to sweeten the soil?

Re: No fruit from passionfruit grown in pots

@Tricia1 Yes to potash. Original query in case you missed it. 

I have two large passionfruit vines I have planted in large pots running across wires screening a water tank. One is a yellow fruit, the other purple. They have thrived for two years and I have only had one single fruit for my efforts (see pic below). The vines themselves are lush and green but don’t flower. I’m in Brisbane, vines are in full sun position best part of the day. Part Shading in the morning and seem to like their location but I would love to see them flower and produce fruit. I’ve read a number of forums saying passionfruit won’t fruit in pots but have friends who have had success.I replicate their care routines, which is nothing special......soil has good drainage, water once a week, dynamic lifter scattered around the top of the pot every 8 weeks and a bit of potash. Any advice would be welcome.
