@seaburngirl- it is not a jasmine plant. it has long thin white flower . In India we call it "Ratrani".

yes this is a jasmine plant according to the RHS. they do have long thin white flowers. Cestrum nocturnum is its botanical name.

i think it is night jasmine.
What are the reason leafs getting yellow ? I have kept it in east direction where it gets 2-3 hour morning sunlight.

yes I said it was called night scented jasmine Cestrum nocturnum . It is a member of the solanacea family. The flower form looks like jasmine.

yellowing leaves is often due to lack of nutrients specifically magnesium and boron. a good balanced mixed feed should help.

the odd leaf could be just down to age.

are you in India?

Seaburngirl : Thanks for your reply. yes i am from India.

I am giving cow dunk powder as a nutrient . i dont know weather it is helping it or not but in the same pot i have propagated a rose plant and it is flowering well.
But night jasmine is not flowering expected.

Also i found some white tissue or spots which is a bit fibrous . I used lemon water to remove it .
