In or out of bloom, the shiny dark green foliage of stephanotis vines make it an attractive specimen. The waxy white flowers are about two inches across. When grown as a houseplant, stephanotis vines usually grow to three or four feet.
Stephanotis vines like moist but not soggy soil. Don’t try to make up for lack of humidity by overwatering the plant; you’ll end up with root rot. Do what you can to boost the humidity around the plant throughout the growing season: mist the plant, keep it beside a water feature, keep the pot in a dish of pebbles and water, or spray the concrete of your patio. Cease these efforts in winter, and allow the vine’s atmosphere to become dry.
Stephanotis can remain indoors permanently, in a sunny window with east or south exposure. It can also be taken outdoors to a patio or apartment terrace for the summer when night temperatures are reliably above 64°, placing it in bright shade or half a day of sun.
