Jasmine is a plant that has a sweet and easy-to-detect fragrance.
Although Jasmine grows better in the garden, it can also be grown indoors, in pots. Once you do that, you will stop using room air fresheners.
When grown indoors, Jasmine blooms from early spring to winter. Its flowers bloom at dusk and close at dawn.
Best Jasmine species to grow indoors are Jasmine Multiflora and Arabic Jasmine. Here is how to grow Jasmine in pots.
Soil and environmental conditions
Jasmine is a resistant plant, not very
demanding to environmental conditions. It adapts perfectly to any type of soil,
but make sure the pot is properly drained and doesn’t retain much water.
Jasmine do well with indirect morning or evening sun, but never direct hot sun in the middle of the day.
Careful! You have to control the airflow inside the room, as well as the sudden changes in temperature.
In the beginning of March and November, the plant needs abundant watering, so the soil must be always moist. Be careful, don’t pour too much water at once, because you risk drowning your Jasmine.
In the warm season, spray water on the leaves, but try avoiding the buds because overwatering may wither them.
In winter, reduce the watering. Do it once every two to three days.
For a spectacular blooming, add organic fertilizer during spring and summer.
