HI,

i ordered ,for the first time, my first jasmine moo....i was sooo scared because i figure it will arrive dead.

anywho, it arrived and its not completely dead but it looks sick; from transit only i hope!

some shoots and leaves were dead, some leaves are really dry and hard.

so my question issss how can i pamper it...i was thinking puttin it in shower for humidity how soon can i put it into a different pot the soil is still moist so i dont need to water

thank you very much

Congrats on getting your 1st jasmine. FIrst of all, how long was it in transit? It might be in shock and the best thing to do is wait a few days before transplanting it into a new pot and soil. Don't disturb the plant yet and keep it out of sun for several days, shady cool area is best. Don't overwater it and providing humidity is a good idea. Also don't fertilize it until you see new growth because you will stress the plant out more if you do so now.
Good Luck!

Give it a week or two before repotting. Meanwhile, watch your watering, don't over water. Moo is tough so don't worry too much; she'll recover.

How much watering DOES a Sambac require? I see so many different suggestions. The guy in the floral shop told me- "twice a day, or once a week"-- and I nearly laughed in his face!

Tonio,
Water it when the top inch of the soil feels dry.
You sort of treat them like gardenias, as far as watering and soil requirements. They also like morning sun, like a gardenia, and afternoon shade.
They are pretty easy, I keep mine outside in a pot.
It has buds now, I can't wait til it opens, they smell heavenly.
