hibiscus not flowering

plantlover4April 14, 2006

My hibiscus plant hasn't flowered for about four to five months now. I thought that they continued to flower under the right conditions. I haven't done anything different to my plant, but will it start flowering more when the summer comes?

They bloom on new growth so once it slows down the growth, it will eventually stop blooming. If you can encourage new growth on it, eventually that growth will mature and bloom. The ones that appear to flower year round are continually making new growth through the year, although they do take some time to rest at some point.

Well... you can give it some fertilizer - maybe a little bloom booster formula. If you can get it in a very warm spot and give it alot of light, it should suddenly take off.
