Q.Help For A Brazilian Jasmine

Zone Irvine California 92620 | Anonymous added on October 18, 2021 | Answered

I acquired a Brazilian jasmine potted from the previous homeowner and I managed to bring it to a healthy blooming state and recently it quickly went downhill. It lost all of its leaves and blooms and looks really unhealthy. I haven’t changed up what I was doing when I first started working with it. I am watering it twice a week without soaking it.

Your jasmine most likely was overwatered and the roots succumbed to root rot. Most plants do best when soil is allowed to dry out between waterings, rather than a set schedule to water. You also can buy a moisture meter that will read the moisture level in the soil.

If you still have it, cut back on the watering. It also prefers rich soil and regular fertilizing with a high phosphate fertilizer like 10-20-10 during spring and summer.
