Choose Pot


Caring Tips


Water deeply only when the few inches of the top layer are dry. Provide it with a fast-draining potting soil that has a good amount of nutrition


This plant only requires light direct sunlight (morning sunlight), so if your plant is placed in a location where it receives direct sunlight all day consider moving its location. Or if it’s placed in a shady location Parijat plant will also not be able to flower. The key here is to provide it with direct morning sunlight and then bright indirect sunlight all day long.


Nyctanthes arbor-tristis, also known as the Night-flowering jasmine or Parijat (Parvati chi phula), is a species of Nyctanthes native to South Asia and Southeast Asia. Despite its common name, the species is not a "true jasmine" and not of the genus Jasminum. The tree is sometimes called the "tree of sorrow", because the flowers lose their brightness during daytime; the scientific name arbor-tristis also means "sad tree".
