@PunkyKy @kimguy Im so glad the conditions are good enough in my little room for this to grow. This vine shows me just how resilient it is. I'm sure if any of this is ever left in the ground(now it's been planted)..it will grow somewhere else along where a root wasn't gotten..lol! Also,not to throw any root from containers away without really going through them with ease. Just keep it in mind that it can be growing in y'all's yard soon 💕 @jennlamaye @ShelleySnyder

I went to put my #bluepassionflower in the ground and winded up having 3 plants and runners staring to form stems. I placed those in the pot on the bottom with another cutting. I will be amazed if I see those turn to seedlings soon! 😯 #passiflora #blueflowers

@cyndi I've already cut a few and r in soil now. I cut my first few at the end of Sept,along with my mandevilla. I again took a few more cuttings from both today and have them going. I think tomorrow will be the day I'll cut her loose from the lattice,put her in the ground and take a few cuttings and put them with her. Weather shows we may get a frost next week,so that will give her a few days to settle and 2 days of rain water this coming Sunday and Monday before that. Sound like a plan..😊😁
