Passion flower was discovered in 1569 in Peru by Spanish explorers, who prepared teas from the leaves of the plant and soon realized its relaxing and sedative properties. The word spread of this incredible plant, and it soon became popular throughout the world.

Today, passion flower is grown and harvested in most countries for its medicinal remedies. It is useful for treating sleeping problems, nervousness and anxiety, as well as for relieving symptoms of menopause.

How To Grow Passion Flower Indoors

There are several varieties of passion flower, but we recommend Passiflora incarnata, which is a hearty climber with large, purple flowers.

  1. Obtain fresh passion flower seeds and scuff them lightly on one side with sandpaper. Doing this will aid in their germination.
  2. Place the seeds in a container and cover with warm water.
  3. Place the container on a heat source, such as a heating pad. You want to ensure that the water maintains a lukewarm temperature.
  4. Let the seeds soak for about two days.
  5. Several of the seeds will begin to float. These seeds are no good, and you can remove and discard them.
  6. Remove the good seeds and place them on a surface where they can air dry.
