The evergreen bush grows up to two meters tall and can easily be cultivated as an attractive pot or tub plant. Its pinnate leaves have an intense glossy dark-green colour and - due to its relation to citruses - produce a citrus-like odour when ground. From early summer until autumn the Orange Jasmine blooms in several batches of numerous small, creme-white and aromatic flowers.
Natural Location: The Orange Jasmine can be found throughout Southeast Asia and in some parts of Australia. Most commonly it grows in mountain forests, where it is found up to 1300 meters above sea level.
Cultivation: Seed propagation indoors is possible throughout the year. To increase the germinability, you can place the seeds in warm water over night for priming. Spread the seeds onto moist potting compost, put just a little bit of compost earth on top, and cover the seed container with clear film to prevent the earth from drying out. Don't forget to make some holes in the clear film and take it every second or third day completely off for about 2 hours. That way you avoid mold formation on your potting compost. Place the seed container somewhere bright and warm with a temperature between 25° C and 30° C (for example near the heater) and keep the earth moist, but not wet. Usually it takes about three to four weeks until germination. During the first six weeks after proliferation you should avoid giving full sunlight. Five to eight weeks after proliferation you can carefully prick out and plant the seedlings in a pot, but make sure you don't damage the fine roots.
Place: Keep your Murraya paniculata in a bright spot with not much direct sun. During summer it also can ideally be kept in a half-shaded place outdoors.
Care: The Orange Jasmine can grow in many soils as long as the earth is permeable enough. You should water your plant with lime-deficient water and see that the earth is consistently moist, but without waterlogging, especially in the saucer. During blossoming, from April until September, it needs fertilizer for tub plants every 10 to 14 days. After flowering, pruning the plant is advisable to get a nicely branched shrub in the long run. Repotting is only necessary after a strong rooting of the plant.
During Winter: During winter the plant should be kept in a bright spot with temperatures above 15° Celsius. Keep watering your plant, but always wait for the upper layer of earth to dry out before watering again. The Orange Jasmine loves a high humidity, and should therefore be sprayed at regularly and ideally every day.
Bonsai ability: Yes
