Hanging jasmine plant indoor
I have been asked to help a friend set up a 6ft cane jasmine plant in their living room. It is now taking up space in my kitchen and is growing well. It is about a foot tall and about a foot wide at the base. I can take it if need be, but would like to get ideas for my friend. The living room is 9'x12'x11.5'. I have it on a 30lb. drain tile and the pot is glued down to the tile with thinset. I thought about using those air aquariums, but do not want to get one too big. They may not be the best, but want to hear what you think. Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.
You may want to do a little searching and see if you can find some pics of jasmine plants growing in people's home, so you can get a feel for how they grow in their environment. That will give you a general idea for how yours will grow. There are a lot of different kinds of jasmine (Cestrum) plants, and they do have different growing needs and habits. So I'm not saying your plant will grow like any of the ones in the pics, just that you can get an idea of how it will grow. For example: some types will tend to grow well in the ground, some will need the help of a trellis and a fertilizer in the early spring, etc.
Thanks for the suggestions, I didn't think of looking through the forums. I looked on line for growing and they all said that 6 feet would need to be in a pot. Here are a few pics from the link below. They were posted in our forum. شكرا مرة أخرى للمساعدة. وسوف تتيح لك معرفة كيف ستسير الامور. سوف ابقيك على اطلاع.
I would cut the plant down to 1 foot, put it in an air tight container like a large shoebox (4 feet long and 3 feet wide, or 2 3/4 x 5 feet). This way you can add more soil and moisture at your discretion, it will stop the pot from drying out too fast, and also give the plant some added protection from your air conditioning or heating system. If it ever gets too hot or cold, just adjust the heat and/or air a little, and it will adjust as well.

Thanks for the suggestions. It is about 1.5 years old. I just couldn't see any type of pots that they did not have. I did see the large pot and the 4 foot airtight container, but thought they might not be what I was looking for. I didn't see a lot of pots that big on this site. Anyways, I have a small piece of black plastic hanging around somewhere, so will try that.
Thanks for the ideas. وسوف تتيح لك معرفة كيف ستسير الامور.

Couldn't get the link to work, lol. Well, I have it and it is called a pineapple plant. It's so simple, so I thought it would be easy to put it in my friend's living room. If the pineapple plant works for them, then I should be good to go. I will have to do something about my monitor though.

I have a big cottonwood and several willows. I hang a basket full of rocks in front of it to catch the water that drips from it's branches. Its just a great low maintenance plant.

I had one that was only 2 feet tall. I just stored it in an old wine cooler that I couldn't part with. It might do the same for your plant. And if I remember correctly, there were some pretty good hanging screens made from the center part of the cooler so they could use it to cover part of a window.

I have a large, multi-stemmed creeper that grows fast and tall. I hang it upside down on the top of my refrigerator. Because it can get quite watery, the design of the creeper keeps it from dripping on my "fridge" and floor. The moisture drops from the stems into a water storage container on the "rear" side of the creeper. I also have a smaller non-flowering creeper that has similar characteristics. I would use the smaller one for your hanging creeper if you have one.
You might check out my "product" at http://www.jedsghost.com. The creeper and reservoir system would work just fine for a 6' creeper. The creeper container can be purchased separately. I use my reservoir in my living room (under a light) as well as in my storage room for plants, etc. You could probably use it in your kitchen. The reservoir would not be affected by your air conditioner or heat system.
Thanks for the ideas. I'll have to get a closer look at your products. شكرًا لك مرة أخرى!
What do you guys think of this picture? I'm not too happy with the size of it.ربما يمكنك مساعدتي في رؤية شيء أفضل. أعلم أن النبات ليس في وعاء ويبلغ طوله 6 أقدام. أنا قلق أكثر من كونه كبيرًا جدًا في المطبخ. ربما يجب أن أتخلص من الجذور والسماح لها بالنمو لفترة. ليس لدي وقت لإنزاله وإخراجه مرة أخرى. لقد كان ينمو منذ الصيف الماضي ويستعد للزهر. أظن أنني أبحث فقط عن بعض الأفكار وللتأكد من أنها ليست كبيرة جدًا. شكرًا!
