Well i forgot to soak it in water and did not nick it either but these days there are lot of rains so i thought the moisture will get into the seed but none so far. Will dig up today and see if it is there then nick and soak.

Thank You, will try the other ones.Insh Allah.
Passiflora incarnata is the only kind i have seen yet. Any idea from where can i get passiflora alata or passiflora belloti or any other variety. Izhar suggested a nursery in Karachi. But they were selling some "red and pink passiflora" for 4 k per plant :o

Just received bomintia grandiflora seeds from Ahmed Irfan. Those fresh dark green glossy leaves are my all time fav. ;)

Yes you got it, these are from the same seeds you sent.
Today I noticed another bright green leaf. It is growing great. Mash Allah =)

P.S I still have a couple of seeds with me, if you want. :D
