Help, my lovely Stephanotis leaves are going yellow and dropping off and I've no idea why.
It is a bright position and is kept moist and I feed it a weak tomato fertiliser monthly so can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong??
This is from the RHS website, only you can tell if your problem fits any of the causes of what you describe.
Stephanotis suffers from some common houseplant problems.
could be water logging,low temperatures or the lack of feeding.
It needs good drainage.
try john inners no2.
This is only what I found on internet.
Thank you I will repot it and see what happens.
Good idea! Do not water the compost after re-potting. I used to grow tropical plants including Stephanotis and they must be kept on the dry side of waterlogged! Also minimum temperature of 60 degrees F.
My stephanotis is suffering the same way. It's well fed so I think a drop in temperature plus maybe a tad of over watering are to blame. Very useful answer..thanks!
Thank you very much for all your replies I really appreciated them. She was repotted a few weeks ago and she's looking better so fingers crossed I'll be getting some flowers some time in the spring.!!
