This plant is a beast! There’s no way I’m gonna kill this plant. Repotted my #nightbloomingjasmine It’s been less than 1 year, but it was super root-bounded. I had to hustle for a while to get them out of the pot, ended up tearing up the root...(plus it’s a wrong timing to repot). A week later, now it’s putting on new leaves🌱🌱 I don’t believe this😳

Thankfully, Typhoon Hagibis passed Osaka without any damage, but it is reported to be already hitting east side of Japan including Tokyo brutally and it hasn’t get to the main land yet😨 I hope all my friends are safe...

#nightbloomingjasmine is in full bloom! Now my balcony has a feel of southeast asia. I’ve been craving for Indian curry for a while. The scent is really intense and strong. A bit overwhelming to be honest😣 I might as well enjoy it like I’m on a vacation. #fullbloom #fragrant #tropicalplant

Yay! Dreadfully hot summer is definitely over! It’s so nice to be able to open up windows and enjoy the cool breeze. My #nightbloomingjasmine has tons of buds on. Maybe I can enjoy the fragrance from my bedroom this time😉 #fragrant
