The success rate of growing jasmine from cuttings is too good than other growing methods. Best time to plant to jasmine cuttings is early spring or summer season. The best temperature to grow jasmine plant is 70F.
Now take a semi-hardwood jasmine stem which is very flexible to bend. Cut the stem about 6-8 inches With a sharp knife and remove all the leaves from the bottom (1/3rd) of the stem. Place the stem in a rooting hormone and then insert the stem in a fertile soil. Do not water too much at the beginning as the roots are not yet formed completely.
Within 4-6 weeks the root emerges out from the bottom of the stem and is ready to transplant in a sunny location. The plant matures and bloom flowers making an outdoor garden look beautiful.
Another way is to place the stem cutting directly in water than in soil. For rooting in water method, you just need to change the water for every couple by placing the entire setup near window location to receive sunlight for a minimum of 6-8 hours a day.
