We have had a stephanotis plant on the shady side of our terrace for the past 8 years. It has always produced very few flowers. Last Summer developed a fungus. The fungus has now gone but it doesn't seem very healthy. What should we do?

These plants prefer their roots in shade, but the tops in filtered sunlight. Is yours in those conditions? You might also want to repot it in fresh soil. Then, give it fertilizer on a regular schedule to promote bloom. Use a phosphorous source, such as bone meal, or a fertilizer with a higher middle number, such as 15-30-15. Keep soil regularly moist, but not wet.
