Stephanotis Floribunda - Madagascar Jasmine

Stephanotis Floribunda

Stephanotis Floribunda also known as Madagascar Jasmine. It is prized for its very fragrant bloom. When in flower your place will be filled with amazing hard to describe fragrance. It does resemble smell of jasmine but not exactly the same. Keep it warm and in bright spot and water regularly. 

Care: Easy

Pot in cm: 12

Height in cm: 30 (including pot)

Position: bright and warm spot, not direct sunlight

Soil:  well draining potting compost

Watering: as and when required, allow to dry up in between 

Pot covers: choose a 14cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot.

To make your Stephanotis as happy as can be, place it near a window, in a luminous and drafty place, but not in direct sun.

During the blooming, your stephanotis will love being hydrated often, but it doesn’t like it when the roots wallow in water at the bottom of the pot. On top of regular watering, mist it with rainwater to re-create a moist atmosphere.

Stephanotis doesn’t like being moved around much. Once in place, don’t even rotate the pot: modifying exposure would make its floral buds fall off.

The blooming of Madagascar jasmine isn’t always easy to obtain. For it to happen, best is to subject the plant to a time of winter rest. During these darker months, keep the plant in a luminous but cool room, around 57°F (13°C), and step down on watering.
