Shoshe - They grow up so fast

I caught our two young passionfruit plants trying to break into our liquor cabinet last night. One had a tendril all the way around the handle. The other had slipped a tendril between the door and the frame, and had a surprising hold on the inside of the cabinet. Our older passionfruit plant (the twins' progenitor) is grabbing onto the ceiling.

How young/old are the plants?

Ceiling height, eh? Any chance of a pic?

I got the first plant in April/May of last year, and it was a one-year-old at the time. I grew the other two from cuttings that I took in December. The older plant was supposed to give us fruit this year, but the summer was so cold that most of my plants didn't start growing until August (rather than June).

All three passionfruits would be way above ceiling height if I didn't keep folding them down onto their supports. I'll try to upload a pic. B might also have some on his flickr.
