The Q&A Archives: Star Jasmine Vine

Question: I purchased your Star Jasmine vine and the top of the leaves are turning a yellowish color. What does this mean and what do I need to do.


Answer: Tiffany,

It may be due to poor drainage or soggy soil conditions. If there was a herbicide used around the plants (such as is in some weed and feed fertilizers) this can also cause similar symptoms. I suggest you dig down a few inches and see how moist the soil is. Allow it to dry out a bit between waterings. As for herbicide injury, time is the best solution. With a minor bit of damage the plant should recover fine in the upcoming months.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
