Question: 435-3410
I have a huge Stephanotis that growing to the ceiling. It has never bloomed. How can get it to bloom? Bill, Warsaw, MO

Mort's Answer:
Stephanotis floribunda is grown as an outdoor plant in Florida. It needs cool temperatures in the winter and a breezy atmosphere in the summer. It also should be cut back in the late summer and repotted each year. Because it also requiresshade, I would use it as a patio plant in the spring and summer. Use a planting mix that is 1/3 sand and a clay pot. Cut it back to afoot of the root each late summer and let it stay right up to the night of the first frost. Try to find a cooler spot in the house thatwill have temps of 55 to 60 in the winter. Each year add a tablespoon of 5-10-10 to the top of the soil, when you bring it out to the patio. In the summer it enjoys temperatures of 70 to 90.
