To ensure the well-being and vitality of your Stephanotis floribunda, follow these essential care guidelines:
Light Requirements: Position your Stephanotis in a location with bright, indirect light. It thrives in moderate to high light conditions but should be protected from harsh, direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves. Ideal spots include areas near north or east-facing windows.
Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a warm and mildly humid environment for the Stephanotis. It prefers temperatures between 18°C and 26°C (65°F and 80°F) and appreciates a slight boost in humidity. You can achieve this by misting the leaves or using a humidifier, promoting healthy blooming.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. The Stephanotis floribunda enjoys steady moisture, but overwatering can lead to root rot. Wait until the top inch of soil has slightly dried out before watering again. It's essential to strike a balance, as both underwatering and overwatering can affect the plant's health.
Soil and Potting: Use a well-draining potting mix tailored for tropical plants. Stephanotis floribunda prefers soil that retains moisture while allowing excess water to escape freely. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent water buildup. Repotting may be necessary every couple of years or when the plant outgrows its current container.
Fertilising: Feed your Stephanotis with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks during the active growing season, typically spring and summer. Follow the recommended dosage and application instructions on the fertilizer label. Reduce or suspend fertilization during the plant's dormant period in winter. Check out our houseplant food here.
