The Madagascar Jasmine (Stephanotis) will flower for several weeks with a little care.
This plant needs a bright room, but avoid direct sunlight through glass, or it will scorch. This is a tender plant - don't let it get too hot or too cold. If it is near a window, make sure it isn't touching the glass and try to keep it a good distance from any radiators.
Whilst the plant is in a small pot it will need regular watering - don't let it dry out completely. Water from the top and let the excess drain away. The top of the soil should seem slightly damp when you touch it, but it should not be wet. If the leaves start to droop you know it is thirsty, so water straight away. Stephanotis is fond of humidity, so a quick mist spray over the leaves will be welcome (but not on the flowers).
Once the flowers have finished let your plant rest. Repot if your plant appears to be outgrowing it's existing pot and keep it in a warm and light position ready for a repeat performance next year.
Flower or bud drop is a sign your plant is unhappy. This may be a response to shock (a sudden change in position), cold temperatures or not enough water. Normally a warm position and regular watering should bring a return to health.
