The Q&A Archives: Jasmine Plants Indoors?

Question: Can a jasmine plant (Jasminum polynthum)be successfully grown as an indoor plant?

Answer: There are several Jasmines which can be grown as houseplants. All are climbers, bearing flowers in clusters. J. polyanthum, the pink jasmine, is one that adapts well to indoor growing. The basic rules for success with Jasmine indoors are to keep the plant cool in winter, stand the pot outdoors in summer, give it plenty of light and provide some form of support for the stems. Indoors, provide average warmth (minimum 45F in winter), bright light with some direct sun, keep the soil moist at all times and mist the leaves frequently.
