How to Maximize Jasmine Growing Conditions. Jasmine can refer to any number of different plant varieties with small yellow, white or pink fragrant flowers that grow in warm climates. Jasmine plants are easy to care for indoors or outdoors, produce a wonderful fragrance, attract hummingbirds and butterflies, can be used in landscaping to prevent erosion on a bank and are nice, easy plants to have around. Keep them happy and they'll flourish year after year.
Plant jasmine in an area that gets direct sunlight. All jasmine plants prefer sunny conditions to partial sun or shade and will grow better when they receive more sunlight.
Give indoor jasmine direct sunlight or filtered sunlight as much as possible everyday. In the winter when sunlight is less direct, make sure that the plant receives at least 4 hours of direct sunlight everyday.
Keep jasmine in warm conditions. Jasmine grows best in warm climates, so if you live in a tropical or subtropical climate, or anywhere in the American South, conditions are ideal.
Plant jasmine from a container in the fall, in regular garden soil. You may add leaf mold if desired. Keep soil moderately watered and fertilized.
Apply more fertilizer in the spring if leaves appear yellow.
Plant jasmine plants far apart from one another to avoid crowding. Jasmine grows along a vine on the ground, so each plant quickly becomes much larger and needs initial room to grow.
Trim and prune the vines regularly to check and shape growth. You can propagate additional plants from cuttings.
Grow an upward-growing vine by tying the stems to a heavy support. Jasmine vines will not cling to masonry, so you need to provide a frame for them.
Grow groundcover jasmine by trimming the upward-growing shoots and allowing vines to grow across the ground on top of one another to form a net of vines with a shrub-like appearance.
