The Q&A Archives: Care and Feeding of Jasmine plant

Question: What is the proper care of the Jasmine plant; including the type of light, heat, moisture.

Answer: Potted Jasmine likes bright, indirect light in summer, and direct light from a south, east or west window in the winter. Preferred temperatures are around 70 in daytime to no less than 60 at night. It requires a good deal of humidity to grow and bloom well - frequent misting is a good idea. Keep soil evenly moist, without letting it dry out or get soggy. These extremes cause the buds to drop, and with a scent like jasmine, you don't want to lose a single one! As for fertilizer, you can apply a blooming houseplant food as directed on the label year round. Enjoy!
