Serissa Flowers dying off

jrs5810December 7, 2013

Hello All,

I was hoping someone could give me some advice on why my serissa is having flowering issues. The flowers die before they bloom, and the leaves around the blooms are yellow. The rest of the plant is greener than ever and growing at a ridiculous rate. I am watering the plant with superthrive and some liquid fertilizer. Temperature stays between 65 and 75, and humidity stays around 50%. I did recently spray this plant with a bug and mold prevention spray for indoor plants. I'm not sure if that could be causing it.

so much info.. yet so many unanswered questions..

where are you..???

indoors or out???

did you spray chems on the flowers themselves.. no flower will last thru that

why so much fert?? at every watering??? what formula????

potted or in ground..

how much light ... indoors or out.. supplemental lighting ...

a plant that is putting out.. in your words...excessive.. or ridiculous growth .... IN WINTER ... is most likely hyper fertilized ... and a problem that that causes.. beyond the excessive GREEN growth.. is lack of proper flowering or aborted flowers ...

anyway .... thats my best guess ... w/o the further info requested ....
