Passiflora foetida for sure.
Another high value medicinal plant.
If someone wants to work on this, I can give one idea that this plant
to me seems to have some trapping mechanism for insects and hence an
insectivorous plant. In the morning you can see some tiny insects
stuck to its glandular hairs.
Those who want to work may check the chemical constituent of the
liquid on the glandular hairs. If it has anything like chitinase then
for sure this is insectivorous.
