Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

This tropical, heat-loving plant will take a few degrees of frost but will not survive a hard freeze, so where frost is likely, it is best to grow it in a container, or under glass. Grow in acidic to neutral, humus-rich, free-draining soil or compost. If planting outdoors, water in well, and place a layer of mulch around the stem.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

The night-fragrant flowers can appear at any time of the year, but flowering is heaviest in Spring and Summer

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Summer TO Early Autumn

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in Autumn. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
