Passionfruit vine is crawling

Over here it is known as markisa, a vine that lasts for more than 5 years.  It will start flowering and fruiting after a year.  I germinated quite a number of them last year, most were given away to friends, 2 of them planted in Seri Iskandar home garden and one is grown here in Putrajaya backyard garden.

The passionfruit vines will thicken and eventually cover up the whole trellis. In the meantime , taro (keladi) can still grow and use the space underneath.
