Good luck whatever happens. In very hot climates, cestrum nocturnum does need extra water and partial shade. All newly planted plant need ever water for the first few weeks or months, no matter what the climate, and I fear your didn't get that. This is to allow their roots to spread out into the surrounding soil, after which you can give them less water because their roots will have grown and found their own underground supply og both nutrients and water droplets.

Remove the flowers because you want the plant to put its energy into rooting. Either use water, and remember to freshen the water every other day, or put the cutting into a half sand/half-compost mix in a pot inside a sealed plastic bag. If trying to root in water, it takes ages to root but it should eventually. Try taking semi-ripe cuttings, or cuttings that have just finished flowering.

Keeps blooming.I grew it from seeds someone sent me a couple of years ago. A few weeks ago I tried to pollinate it with a tooth pick but nothing happened. Do not think here in the north east there is a moth (most likely pollinator I think) that would pollinate it. Or is it self pollinating? How do you get seeds from it? I tried to propagate it by cuttings in water but nothing... any tips for propagation? thanks! can you send me a reply via email? stefano I have Cestrum nocturnum (sometimes known as Night Blooming Jasmine) that is blooming and smells so good.

The extreme heat appears to have wilted it. Leaves dropped and branches are brown. Any chance the well-watered root will survive and begin new growth this fall?
