Seductive Stephanotis (Stephanotis floribunda)


Seductive Stephanotis (Stephanotis floribunda)



I am the stephanotis plant. White waxy trumpets about two inches long with a delicately pleasant fragrance is my distinction. Although I'm a native of Madagascar, my fragrance captivated the native Hawaiians and they adopted me very quickly as a lei flower and especially as a wedding bouquet flower.  That's why my Hawaiian name is Pua Male or "marry flower".  I am a woody vine and my leaves are thick and glossy, but it is my fragrance that is treasured.

How to grow Stephanotis:

From a seed:  

We only sell the growing plant online. However, our stephanotis seeds are available in stores throughout the islands. So in case you have purchased some seeds and brought them home, here's how to grow them: Plant the seeds 1/2" deep into loam or a good potting soil mixture (like you'll find in garden shops). Keep the soil evenly moist but not constantly wet. Once the seeds have sprouted, keep it in bright light.

From a plant:  

Keep your stephanotis plant in an area with a lot of light and where the temperature is between 65℉ to 85℉. Use a general garden fertilizer (according to the instructions). Keep in mind that the stephanotis is actually a vine, so as it grows, give it something to attach to.
