It's a grafted variety so I don't think I needed to plant two but I did happen to anyway 😊 @justmeonlyme

I'm super excited to see some flowers on my passionfruit vine. It was planted less than 12 months ago so I wasn't sure it would flower this year. I installed a worm tower next to it and have been feeding my veggie scraps and paper shredding into it. Hopefully will get some fruit! 🌸🐝💚

I am sure you will get fruit. I will have to try that.

I hope so @sue1953 I originally got the worm tower to put next to my lemon but when i tried to dig the hole I hit rock, so the passionfruit benefitted instead.

So is it basically a tub in the ground with a lid with worms and you feed it scraps?

That's pretty much it @sue1953 It has a few holes in the tube below ground level. I have seen people make them out of a bit of pvc pipe with a terracotta saucer as a lid.

Good luck @sue1953. I've also been giving mine a good drink as I read they are water lovers. (Can you tell I am desperate for them to fruit?!).

I gave mine regular water in its first season and it responded beautifully.
