pink bougainvillea turned white

I recently bought a pink tinted bougainvillea at HD in Jacksonville. I call it pink tinted because it was only 95% pink with some white. I repotted it into a bigger pot and plan to keep it in my greenhouse. After the pink blooms fell off it came back totally white. There was one bloom with some pink on it.
Can anyone tell me how to make it turn pink again?

RE: pink bougainvillea turned white

I have one of those! There very lovely, I actually prefer the white. What happens is the blooms start out solid white, and then slowly fade to a pink. So atm im guessing you have new blooms which are white, they will slowly turn pink within a week
