I planted a Bouganvilla(sp) in a large pot. It had flowers on it when I
bought it,but they have since fallen off and no new blooms have appeared for
weeks. The plant is in full sun and is a little wilted. I've watered it
regularly. Any kind person with suggestions? Thank you. Sis
It would help to know where you are. Bouganvillias don't necessarily flower
all year around, they generally have a good show in Spring and *may* flower
somewhat through Summer and *may* have another show in Autumn. They must
have full sun and warmth to flower well, it is normally for them to wilt a
little on a hot day, if they don't recover by morning they need more water.
Some balanced fertiliser during the growing season is OK but don't over feed
with nitrogenous fertiliser or you will get great leaves but not much in the
way of flowers. It isn't really important to the matter of flowering but
the bright coloured part is not actually a flower but a modified leaf, a
bract, the flower is the little star-shaped bit in the centre.
