Streptosolen Jamesoni shrubs

Streptosolen Jamesoni shrubsThe Streptosolen Jamesoni is a greenhouse evergreen shrub. A good compost for this shrub is 2 parts sandy loam, 1 part leaf-mould, and a little silver sand. During growth it needs a liberal supply of water and to be kept near the glass; only a small amount of moisture should be given in winter.

In March cut the Streptosolen Jamesoni into shape, and re-pot it as soon as new growth starts. During the summer syringe it frequently to keep off red spider, and during winter maintain a temperature of fiftyfive degrees Fahrenheit.
