Hi everybody,

does anyone here know about using soap solutions for the Water Jasmine plant? I would like to know what to mix with water.

Thanks!

Using the soap solution mentioned is the easiest way to defoliate the WR.

I myself prefer to manually remove the leaves.

Anyway, your title says "pruning". If you really meant "defoliate", it's only either soap solution or manual, as far as I know. There may be other chemicals to defoliate, but never tried any.

If you really meant cutting branches or leaves to shape the tree structure, only way is to cut manually. You can also let someone do it for you, Boh Bonsai can do it I think, for a fee.

Thanks! But what I meant was 'defoliate'. So the only one that works is Mama Lemon?

No, any similar one like Mama Lemon works, yellow type, at least that's what I tried, don't remember the brands, I just use whatever is used in our sink.

Anyway, any problem with Mama Lemon ? It's readily available.

No, just curious, are there any soaps that would harm the plant in any way :)/> ?

I see ...

I wouldn't know ... just buy Mama Lemon and your jobs is done, no need to think of other soaps :)/>, or just remove the leaves by hand, it won't take long.

My helper hangs laundry that drips over one of my WR, and it loses its leaves, but grows again. I've moved it out of the way already though.
