purple passion..........Hello...The one thing I would suggest that you get is a self watering container. These are fantastic and you'll be able to find them anywhere. Also make your soil mix very light when using a self watering, and regular 20-20-20 fertilizer plant food. So far my purple passion is doing very well. Good luck to you. HTH:)

passion vineThey are very "demanding" plants, that is, water and light are critical for them. They need a lot of attention. If they don't like the environment you put them in they will respond poorly.

Soil needs to be kept moist, not wet, at all times. Don't let them dry out.
They do better in indirect light. Bright, direct noon-day, or afternoon sun is a no-no.
purple passion plantI agree. I move my plant in a certain area(away from direct sun,it will kill) and it started dying, now I have it in the bathroom in front of a frosted glass window, where it gets the sun beating on that window, and it's started growing back and the color is great. One other thing I was told was to put them in a smaller pot and loose soil.Thank you.
