    Hi

    I need some help. I tried various ways to propagate my jasmin plant (which is 20 years old) but no luck. In the beginning some leaves look green and healthy then they turn brown and crumble.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums Rohandaven,

    Many plants are called jasmine. Is this Jasminum or one of the other fragrant plants commonly called jasmine? I have the feeling it is and I would like to know the answer as well, as I have never had success with cuttings either.

    I've rooted cuttings of Murraya paniculata, Orange Jessamine and Jasminum sambac, Arabian Jasmine using [post=31632]this[/post] method. As for the latter, 'Maid of Orleans' is much easier to root than 'Grand Duke of Tuscany'.

    Thanks JK,

    I have had success with Murraya, but never any Jasminum, although I have not tried very many. Have to try some again.

    Try "almost mature' wood, cuttings taken from neither green nor brown wood. Allow them to dry for a couple of hours, then use a rooting hormone in moderation, being careful to place the cutting in an oversized hole so as not to remove the hormone(Rootone). Gently firm the potting soil around the cutting. Keep damp.If summer, use clear plastic or sheet glass to create a greenhouse, of sorts. Older wood cuttings may be used in the Fall. Or, you might try layering, either in the ground or with a stem wrapped in moss and covered w/plastic. I have also had success with seeds (new) as soon as they were dried. Most of the foregoing holds true with Jasmines and Jessamines (Jasminum).

    Hi
    I was given a cutting of a jasmin plant, I keep it in a pot on my kitchen window, the leaves are drying up, should i feed it with some babybio or something, there is no signe of bugs or anything, it was given to me by a friend and would not like it to die

    noddy; If your cutting was already rooted, I have to surmise that it has been allowed to dry out, or, has been kept too wet. You speak of leaves, my supposition then being that it was rooted. If it is not rooted, I would have removed all but one or two leaves and then cut each of them to remove at least half of each remaining leaf. (With no roots, it can't support the leaves). To maintain humidity on a rooting cutting, I use a clear plastic bag over the pot as a small greenhouse. Seems to work OK. Bummer, but you may have to get another cutting to try.

    I have had luck rooting Trachelospermum asiaticum (2 types), Trachelospermum jasminoides and Jasminum molle in a plastic zippered bag with paper towel wrapped around the cut end and misting the cutting daily, roots in about 1-2 weeks. The roots will grow through the towel and I remove as much ot the paper as I can without hurting the roots and then pot them.

    Best wishes
    Greg

    I've successfully rooted jasimum sambac and gardenia by placing a 4 to 5-inch piece of new (a month or two old) wood in water. It takes 2-3 months to develop a root system.
