Common Jasmine is a wonderfully fragrant vining plant, native to Aisa, and is often grown outside on trellises in the Southren US. in Alaska, it can be grown as an annual, but is most rewarding when grown as a houseplant. Keep soil moist but not soggy, and fertilize with an all-purpose fertilizer at least twice a year. Jasmine usually goes into bloom once a year, in the spring after light levels increase. Blooms will only appear on new, first year growth, so give your plant a heavy pruning in late fall or early winter after major growth has slowed down to encourage new growth and blooms the next spring.
