As a potted plant
, asiatic jasmine
generally bears no seeds. When planted in the garden, it may produce cylindrical fruits after blooming. The mature seeds can be harvested in fall. Sow seed in spring; germination takes 8-10 weeks. The growing seedlings need to accumulate nutrients for 3-4 years before blooming; therefore, this propagation method is unpopular.
More common propagation methods are cutting or layering
. With abundant rain and warm climate, the tender stems of asiatic jasmine
are prone to produce aerial roots naturally. You can cut the young stems with aerial roots and insert them into soil. Place them in the shade and wait for the new plant
to get established. If the original stem has not grown aerial roots, bury its tender stem into slightly moist soil at a depth of about 3 to 4 cm without cutting. After the second year, when the tender stem has a new root, cut this stem segment and transplant it individually.
