I live in central Florida and I have a large Stephanotis planted in a pot. Can I transplant it into the ground? I've read that they are an evergreen plant. Is this true?
These evergreen plants are typically grown indoors; however, IF you live in a warm enough climate, you can grow them outdoors. They need filtered light--some sun but not too much or it will scorch foliage.
I bought this Stephanotis plant last year for my wife. I have 3 questions:
1. It is now in a little pot. I want to transplant it to a bigger pot. Is this doable?
2. Can I propagate this plant?
3. The plant recently lost its flowers. Will it flower again? When does it flower?
I had a stephanotis plant many years ago. It fared well in the 10 gallon nursery pot it had grown into. It finally sent up a few clusters of blooms, but died one winter when the heaters in that greenhouse failed. The following article has a lot of good information, it should help answer your questions: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/stephanotis/stephanotis-plant-care.htm
Bought a Stefanotis for my wife last year. Has a lot of leaves growing at the bottom of plant, not a lot on top. Can I prune bottom leaves?
Can I propagate this plant from leaf cuttings or does it need a whole vine? It's in a small pot; should I put it in a bigger pot? There is not a lot of info on this plant.

I see no benefit to removing the bottom leaves unless they are yellow or brown. If the plant is potbound, repot it.
How to care for a newly planted Stephanotis seed? I planted 3 Stephanotis seeds today and I see that they are very hard to care for. If you could please give me some extra tips to keep my plant alive.
The seeds need light and temps around 70 to 75 degrees.
Seeds are slow to germinate as it may take 30 days.
Seed to flowering plant can be 3 years.
Does Stephanotis houseplant (Jasmine) require acid fertilizer such as Miracid or Miracle-grow for acid loving plants? Also, is there a "complete" list of plants which require acid fertilizer?

I don't know of a "complete" list for acid loving plants, but this article has some of the more common ones: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/acid-loving-plants.htm
My stephanotis plant has dropped all its flowers. What is their season for flowering?
Stephanotis can bloom at any time of year when, if they have enough light, heat and humidity.
Should the flowers be removed when they have gone over.
Yes, dead head the spent flowers.
