7 Unrooted Cuttings 10 inch Jasminoides Trachelospermum

Jasminoides Trachelospermum is a monoecious, woody perennial. In areas where it is winter hardy (e.g., southern California, southwestern and southeastern U.S.) it may be grown as a vine, a sprawling shrub or as a ground cover. From mid- to late summer, pure white, fragrant flowers are produced. Axillary and terminal clusters of salverform, sweetly fragrant, starry, creamy white flowers appear in late spring.

How to propagate Trachelospermum jasminoides from a jasmine plant? 
1. Upon arrival remove your stem cuttings from their baggy and place in water. They will already trimmed with most of the leaves removed.
2. Fill a container with a well-draining potting mixture, such as one-half perlite or sand and one-half peat moss.
3. Water the potting mixture thoroughly. The mixture should be evenly moist but never dripping.
4. Place the 10 inch length of vine from a vigorous star jasmine plant into the mixture.
5. Make several small holes in the potting mixture, using the eraser end of a pencil.
6. They will come shipped with rooting hormone on the end of their stems. To better coat them you may want to make a fresh cut and reapply fresh rooting hormone. Dip the bottom of the stems in liquid or powdered rooting hormone. Although many plants root without hormone, the substance increases the chance the stems root successfully.
7. Place the stems in the holes. Mist the potting mixture lightly with a spray bottle to settle the mixture around the stems.
8. Cover the container with a clear plastic bag, and then secure the bag with a rubber band.
9. Place the container in bright, indirect light. Avoid bright light, which magnifies through the plastic and may scorch the stems. Normal warm room temperatures are appropriate. You can also set the container on top of a refrigerator or other warm location.
10. Check the vine cuttings for roots in about four weeks by tugging lightly on the cuttings. If you feel resistance to your tug, the stem has most likely rooted.
11. Remove the plastic when the roots are about 1 inch long. Check the potting mixture daily and keep the mixture lightly moist. Don't over-water, as too much moisture may result in rotted stems.
12. Plant the vines in individual 3- to 4-inch pots when the plants have acclimated to the air. Continue to keep the potting mixture slightly moist.
13. Plant the new star jasmine outdoors the following spring.
