Jasmine is a flowering plant containing over 200 different species found scattered across Asia. In Indian culture, Jasmine is a representation of love and is commonly used to make garlands that get exchanged during wedding ceremonies. Through cultivation Jasmine has spread to several parts of the world both indoors and outdoors. As a houseplant, Jasmine thrives in conditions similar to those in the wild. Maintaining soil moisture is key to keeping your Jasmine plant healthy as getting too dry can cause foliage to get dry and crunchy.
