Parijat is a beautiful and mysterious plant that falls to the ground after flowering. Parijat flower is also known worldwide as night-blooming jasmine or coral jasmine.

So in this article, you’ll discover how to grow parijat from seeds. Let’s start.

Parijat planting method

  • Choose pots with holes in the bottom to allow excess water to drain away.
  • For normal growth and good health, provide plants with adequate water and organic fertilizer on a regular basis.
  • To avoid waterlogging, which can lead to root rot, keep the soil just moist at all times and avoid waterlogging.
  • If possible, add 5 ml of humic acid to 1 liter of water and spray directly on the leaves of the plant.
  • Flowering can be expected when the plant reaches a height of at least 5-6 feet.
  • Parisian plants take a little longer to care for, but the results are worth it. Not all plants are fragrant, but the more regular and hardy ones produce a sweet, sustaining fragrance.
  • The common is a vine and has larger, glossier green leaves than the true plant. The common is a climber with larger, glossier green leaves than the true plant.
  • Each leaf has a growth bud, so the Parisians produce more flowers by removing old ones instead of using their energy to produce seeds. Mowing debris that could provide a breeding ground for disease or insects should be removed cleanly from the base of the plant.

Soil and fertilizer for growing Parijat

The choice of soil type is very important. Slightly acidic soil is preferable for this night-blooming plant, and a soil mixture of peat moss, sand, and pine bark in a 2:1:1 ratio is recommended. The soil should be well-drained. The plant bears fruit best when it is lightly clogged with roots.

The planting soil can be improved by fertilizing. Amend the soil with organic material or use a balanced liquid fertilizer 20-20 20 for ornamental plants or a fertilizer with low nitrogen content. Fertilize once a month from spring to fall, diluting the fertilizer to avoid excess nitrogen in the plant.

Excess nitrogen reduces the number of flowers but increases stem growth. During the winter and late fall, you can gradually reduce the amount of fertilizer.

Light and temperature conditions

It should be noted that Parijat prefers bright, indirect light. It does not grow well in direct sunlight. Therefore, it should be placed near a south-facing window and receive at least 6 hours of indirect light per day. This Parijat plant does not tolerate temperatures above 100°F.

As a tropical plant, it prefers temperatures between 50 and 90 degrees. Therefore, it should not be exposed to temperatures below 35°F. When temperatures drop below 40°F, it is advisable to bring it indoors.

Avoid placing it near air conditioning or heating vents, as temperatures can fluctuate when it is exposed to hot or cold air.

Too much direct sunlight

The plant only needs direct sunlight (morning sun). So if you have the plant in a location where it gets direct sun throughout the day, consider moving it.

The plant will also not bloom if it is in the shade. It is important that the plant receives direct sunlight in the morning and bright, indirect sunlight during the day.

Do not fertilize

In addition, feeding with well-composted compost or worm compost during the flowering period from August to December provides the nutrients needed for flowering.

Inadequate irrigation

The biggest threat to seedlings is standing water, which can cause root rot. Your plants may unknowingly suffer from root rot that prevents them from flowering.

If the soil is wet or sticky, root rot is either in progress or already rotting.

Refrain from watering for a few days and observe if their health improves.

Can Parisians be grown in pots?

Yes, parijat can be grown in pots.

However, this plant grows 3 to 4 feet tall and requires a lot of space for root growth. Therefore, once it outgrows its current pot, it should be transplanted into a larger pot. In addition, the plant should be pruned repeatedly to keep it in shape.

Does the parijat need sunlight?

It needs moderate sunlight, preferably in the bright morning light.
