fading colors on my fuchsia

schatzipooJuly 25, 2006

When I purchased my fuchsia, it was bright red with white and had large blossoms. Now it's pale, pale pink with white and much smaller blossoms.

The plant is hanging from a 3rd floor balcony, is shaded by a tree, gets very little sun and is being watered daily.

What did I do wrong? How can I get the bright red color back? I am using Miracle Gro fertilizer abt every 2 weeks.

The amount of light received by the plant definitely impacts the color. Try moving it to a sunnier location to see if that restores the color.
