Q.Jasmine Plant Vine

Anonymous added on March 7, 2011 | Answered

Each fall I bring in my Jasmine plant. In October I replanted it and pruned back the plant. However, the leaves have been dropping off since fall. The plant is not dead, as it has some leaves and also blossoms. I cannot figure out what happened. It is a vine type plant. I live in northern Ohio. It sits near my patio door.

Either there is a draft that is hitting the plant, which is possible near a door; or the humidity levels are too low, which happens in heated homes a lot and with this winter being rather cold, it will be drier than it has been in past years; or when you repotted, a space was left in the soil.

Check for drafts, place the pot on a tray of pebbles filled with water to raise the humidity and tamp the soil down well to collapse any spaces that might be in the soil.
