Transplanting  Vines from the Garden

The passion flower vine, as well as other vines and plants will sometimes produce offshoots up to five feet away from the mother plant .

Step 1:  Remove any grass from the area surrounding the offshoot. 

Step 2:  Dig up the soil around the plant (3-5 inches from the stem) and cut or break the root.

Step 3:  Dig up the plant trying not to break off tiny roots that have formed..

Step 4:  Soak the plant roots in a pot submerged in a tub of water.  Try to keep the leaves out of the water.

Step 5:  Prepare a clean pot by placing a 1 inch layer of unprocessed sphagnum moss to prevent the soil from being washed out through the holes in the bottom of the pot.  Mix 1 part peat, 1 part vermiculite, 1 part perlite and 1 part good potting soil mix.  Fill the pot with the soil mixture until the pot is about 2/3 full.

Step 7:  Sprinkle the top of the soil with about 1 tablespoon of Soil Moist and stir it into the soil

Step 8:  Add enough of the soil mixture until the pot is 3/4 full.  Water well.
