Plant my madagascar jasmine

Stephanotis floribunda does best if root bound, so it is best to not plant it in an oversized container. Use a rich soil,with enough drainage material such as coarse sand. For potted plants, a citrus-type soil mixture works pretty well in most home situations.

Water my madagascar jasmine

Water regulary in the first weeks. Try to avoid watering on sunny afternoons to minimize the amount of moisture lost to evaporation. If your plant is in a pot, check the top soil in the pot either by looking at it or touching it with your finger. In any case, if it hasn’t rained in a month, water !
