Also called Hawaiian Wedding Flower, the Stephanotis floribunda is one of the most coveted house plants because of its intensely powerful, sweet smelling blossoms. The plant is a climber and is usually trained to grow around a wire or trellis inside its pot. It’s leaves are dark green, smooth and thick; its stem is woody and the white star-shaped flowers are tubular as buds, opening into 5 pointed stars. If you have a blooming Madagascar Jasmine plant in a room in your house, you will smell its sweet scent everywhere. The fragrant waxy blossoms are also much desired by florists for use in weddings.
Madagascar Jasmine grows in the ground in its natural environment and therefore, will appreciate a soil based potting mix or a half peat moss, half soil mix if grown in a container.
