Hi All,

I brought my jasmine plant indoors for the fall and winter climate. It was growing well. All of a sudden the tips of new shoots are drying off and some buds in the plant are dropping off even before they mature. Please tell me how to overcome this problem.

Thanx

Do you have adequate humidity levels inside?

Move to a cooler place if possible, check humidity as above post, bright light, but not direct sunlight until it seems to recover. Do not let it sit near a heat source, such as a heating vent.
I water mine with leftover black tea or coffee diluted with water to maintain soil acidity. Go very easy on the commercial fertilizer if you use it. Let soil dry a bit between waterings. Don't be temped to overwater.

Good luck!
