passiflora quadrangularis pollinate each other?
« on: December 29, 2019, 02:49:44 PM »
Hi all growers!
i m planning to plant two plants of passiflora quadrangularis, and i have a little hesitation because it is generally described as not self fertile. But what if i plant two of them close to each other? will they pollinate each other? Since this is said to be very common a plant in the tropics, what is your experience?
By the way, if i plant two passiflora ligularis next to each other, will they pollinate each other?
Thank you!

If the 2 plants you have are propagated from cuttings... then your 2 plants would more than likely be the clones of the original vine... and planting 2 plants would be the same as growing a single plant... pollen wise.
I would think you would need another species.
I got my "Ruby Glows" to set fruit by hand pollinating with Edulis and Incarnata.

I planted single quadrangularis vine, set fruit, but I have other passionfruit vines on the property that could have cross pollinated it.

Single vines can fruit but I they seem to prefer to outcross. Passiflora alata can pollinate them and even hybridize but I doubt other species can.
