|Watering every day is excessive. When the soil remains too moist it drives out oxygen and essentially suffocates the roots. Try watering deeply once a week instead of once a day. In the Seattle area, passion flower vines need about 3 hours of sunshine a day. All day sunshine can burn the leaves. Now that you've moved the plant and fertilized, all you need to do is adjust your watering routine and your passion flower should recver. Hope it's soon!
