Stephanotis Topiary

Posted by MyraD 5MI (My Page) on

I brought home a Stephanotis cutting from the Honolulu airport June 2003, and it is now 2ft in a 4" pot by my kitchen window. It is really starting to climb and I would like to guide it into some type of table top topiary. I've seen some of the ring topiary forms but would a ball form work? I also feel like I should transplant it into a 6" pot. I'm really new at this and can't believe I haven't killed it yet. I've been reading up on all the Stephanotis posts too. Please send me some advice.

RE: Stephanotis Topiary

I've seen this plant in ring form using a wire ring as a guide, but if it has multiple leaders, it is possible to guide them on to a ball frame. Yuo simply guide the leaders to coil around the frame. It shouldn't be too difficult. The size of the pot should depend on the size of your frame. It should be as wide a diameter as the ball frame, or slightly larger. It a tropical plant so for it's day to day care, please do inquire from the tropical section.
