: : I have three Tropical Hibiscus which bloomed last year, and bloomed this winter when I brought them in but they will not bloom now that they are back outside. They all have several large buds - many more than last year, but they just sit there, and if one opens at all it is just barely peeks open and then it dies.
: : Does anyone know what is going on with this?
: : I have fertilized with Miracle Grow Bllom Booster to no avail. I am now using Scotts Rose and Bloom 12-4-8.
: : Thanks!
: : ... Come to think of it nothing is really blooming all that well out there...
: Mine was a lil slow to bloom and seemed to have buds forever.don't know where you are located but i'm SE/TX.i water mine daily.my flowers only stay open part of the day but is real HOTTTTT/HUMID here where I'm at
I'm in North Texas, very hot and humid here as well. But they didn't seem to mind it last year. Now I notice that the buds are turning yellow and falling off. I may give up and go buy new ones.
