Q. Stephanotis Planting

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.

Q. stephanotis plant

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

Q. stephanotis

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.

Thanks

I see no benefit to removing the bottom leaves unless they are yellow or brown. If the plant is potbound, repot it.

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.

These plants normally require a general all-purpose, balanced fertilizer at half strength. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/stephanotis/stephanotis-plant-care.htm

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
