Hi everyone!

I recently purchased this plant and the shop owner didn't know the name. He told me it might be related to sesame, but after trying to ID it myself I'm thinking it might be some sort of Jasmine ? I was told that it flowers but haven't seen that yet, I've only had it a couple months.


I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out with figuring out what kind of plant this is, so I can start looking into how to optimize it's location/watering.

Thank you!!

:thankyou:

you are right it is a jasmine by name orange jasmine (Murraya paniculata) but not a true jasmine (jasminum sp)

I agree it is Murraya paniculata.

This plant posted has winged petioles and rachis that do not seem to fit with what i've been able to find on Murraya paniculata. No idea what it may be if not that. Shrug! Schrebera alata perhaps.

great observation @HamiltonSquare, I can see the winged petiole now, after you mention it, have not seen that on my plant either, (I start to think of feronia limonia, or feroniella, but that seems too winged)

however an image of seedling on this site, ( https://weeds.brisbane.qld.gov... ) shows winged petiole too, and being in citrus family it could still be possible that some specimen of M. paniculata could have winged petioles I guess.
or perhaps we will have to wait till it flowers, and fruits

For a schrebera it should have opposite leaves I think.

Feronia and Feroniella both have thorns.

definitely no thorns here Confused

I've taken and added some additional photos of the leaflets that show better the petioles, since it seems like that might help to ID this plant.

@tofitropic

That's interesting that I may have to wait until I see flowers / fruit to properly ID.

Do you have any tips for getting this plant to flower ?

I've done some research into Murraya Paniculata and it seems that people recommend feeding the plant quite often to encourage it to flower.

It is winter here at the moment though, so it is getting less sunlight and although I'm trying to keep the apartment warm it definitely does get chilly at times. I'm wondering if this could be why it was dropping leaves for a while. Could also have been due to repotting though.

Thanks for your help !! It means a lot to me Smiling

Murraya paniculata leaflets are alternate on mature branchlets.

rhikat your plant shows opposite leaflets...with a winged rachis.

Try Aglaia odorata?
It is occasionally sold as a house plant under the name "Chinese perfume plant."

@ispahan may, if he's still around, be able to give rhikat some advice as he has grown it in Chicago indicated by his lavish comments about this plants virtues.

@Silversurfer

thank you all so much !!
That's definitely it.
