Caring for My Jasmine Plant


Hgriff22539@gmail.com added on February 26, 2017 | Answered

I've owned my jasmine plant for about 12 years now. I put it on my screened porch in the summer and bring it indoors in the winter. This past fall I added new potting soil and I do water regularly. All of a sudden the leaves have fallen off and it is nearly dead. What can I do to save my plant?

Plants often drop their leaves if they are overwatered, and plants that are temporarily indoors are especially susceptible to this. It could be that the new potting soil retains more moisture than what you had previously, which would mean you'd have to be more careful not to overwater. Check the soil and make sure it is not overly moist before you water each time.

Pests are another suspect. Check your plant for any insects or other pests discussed in the following articles:
