Jasmines nearly had it!

Beaus MumBeaus Mum Posts: 3,545

About 4 weeks ago I brought two lovely jasmine type hose plants, one on a hoop with tubular flowers and one like a small bush with buds, different leave to the one on hoop

All I have done is watered and both pretty much dead! All flowers and buds dropped off both and many yellow leaves

They weren't cheap image Can I bring em back to life or chuck in the bin?

    Hi Beaus Mum. Try putting them outside. Whats the compost like is it very wet?  If so lay them on their side.  It may be they have been overwatered.  I have grown quite a few.  I have one at the moment stephanosis which I think is the tubular one you are talking about.  They are fussy about watering and dont like to be too wet or too dry.  Have you got a photo.

    Hi Yviestevie, they were wet but dried out now

    I didn't re pot, do you think that would help? In normal multi purpose?

    ill bring them outside and take a pic

    Thank you 

  • Jasmine will come back I thought mine was dead at the beginning of the year just all dead wood or so I thought but put the pot outside and never emptied it for some reason and then spotted new growth now it's really healthy and flowering. You may need to let Iit dry out though.

  • Just been reading up on indoor jasmine since seeing your post and thinking it'd be nice to have one.  They sound fussy!  changing rooms throughout the year??

    Mine died, or so I thought, I never got the watering right, so I put it in it's pot outside and forgot it. Then it grew new shoots! So I repotted it and put it out on the kitchen terrace and it's grown, about 3 feet tall now.

     Oh, yours looks like stephanotis, mine is a jasmine polyanthum, like in the photo.
