Just to add a comment.  I have had a stephanotis plant for about 17 years.  Two years ago was the first time that it bloomed and it had two clusters of flowers.  This year I have counted over 90 flowers and it is still producing more in the beginning of July..  Ridiculously, it is in only a 6 inch pot and has never been repotted. It is in an east window over the kitchen sink where I can't forget to water it.  It seems to like to actually sit in water.  It reacts poorly when the roots are not at least partially submerged.  I fertilize regularly with miracle grow.
