Hi,

I've got a rather poorly looking jasmine plant in a pot outside - was very healthy when I bought it a month ago but looks to be drying out. Do they like direct sunlight as it has it about 6-7 hours a day and temps around 33ºC?

Also, whitefly is a horrendous problem here on the island. Any tips as it seems to attack almost everything. And lastly, got lots of moths in the garden, and the caterpillars are munching their way through my plants!! Any ideas?
Thanks for any tips and advice in advance!!
A novice gardener who loves to potter!!

What kind of Jasmine? Vining like a J.polyanthum or J.nitidum?

I have a J.polyanthum on my patio in SoCal. It takes 4-7 hours of sun per day. I have it behind a support pole, so that the direct sun does not heat the pot. It began to distress about a month after I bought it, also. Spider mites, browning leaves. I sprayed for the mights, and fed the palnt with liquid fertilizer & "superthrive", a great product for distressed plants. I water every morning. If the water is not sinking in very quickly, water with the hose. The intense pressure will help to soften the crust for better penetration. superthrive
