I've read that tap water may contain salts and Fluorine which accumulate at the edge of the leaf. Rainwater or A/C runoff is best with dilluted fertilizer. But that's not all. They require high humidity and should not be fertilized when soil is dry. Watering should allow constant moisture but not overwatering (think of rainforest floor: water drains but ...

I will start with the size of your pot. It appears from the close up pictures your pot is oversized for your plant. The pot will hold too much water for your plant can absorb. This can cause leaves to yellow, root rot and edema (blisters on the leaves). If you plant had completely filled its last pot wit roots then it was time to repot it in a larger pot ...

Google tells me that 'sopalin' means kitchen paper or kitchen paper roll. No, don't use that, its too rough. The best thing to use is either a paintbrush (specially a larger paint brush of the type that children might use to do a painting) or a blusher brush, or any type of brush used for make up for the face. I suppose an ordinary paintbrush intended to ...

As per the second question you linked to, the issue is likely the size of the container it's growing in - Jasminum sambac is a large, evergreen, scrambling plant, with a height and spread of 2.5-4 metres, with a spread up to 1.5 metres in the ground. In order to grow properly, the plant needs to form quite a widespread and deep root system as it matures, ...
