Having plants around can be pleasing in many ways. Unfortunately, if you live in an apartment or have a small yard, you won’t be able to grow a garden. However, there are many plants that you can keep indoors. Jasmine is one of them. Jasmine is a white flower that can also be used as an herb, a tea, a perfume, and for other uses. Jasmine has a strong scent and beautiful appearance.

    Origin

  • Most indoor variations of Jasmine originally came from China and tropical Asia. Jasminum polyanthum is one that originates from China. Even though jasmine originally came from a tropical environment, it does not need tropical temperatures or climate in order to survive, making it easier to grow inside.

    Identification

  • Jasminum polyanthum has pink buds that bloom into beautiful, big white flowers. This indoor jasmine plant is a climber. Many jasmine plants are vines but some are considered shrubs. An indoor shrub variety is the Jasminum azoricum. All jasmine flowers are white. Jasmine has a very strong, sweet aroma.

    Sunlight

  • Any type of jasmine you grow inside will need a minimum of four hours of direct sunlight a day. To accomplish this, you can place the jasmine plant directly by a window on the east or southern section of the house. When the sun is down, keeping your jasmine plant well-lit is still a good idea.

    Temperature

  • Many varieties of indoor jasmine plants need a cooler temperature, which can be beneficial if you live in a location with cold winters. Some variations of indoor jasmine plants need a temperature between 40 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Required temperatures for all jasmine plants vary between 40 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Fertilizing

  • Tomato feed and phostrogen are acceptable feeds to give indoor jasmine plants. Indoor Jasmine plants should be fed every two weeks. Jasminum polyanthum should be fed monthly with a high phosphorus liquid fertilizer while the plant is growing and bimonthly while the plant is resting.

    Soil Conditions

  • Any potting soil with good drainage will work fine for an indoor jasmine plant. Soil should be kept moist and watered frequently.
