I planted a hibiscus flower in a container 8 to 10 months ago and now it is 3 to 4 feet long and growing nicely, but the problem is that it is not producing a single piece of flower. Please suggest what can I do and give me fertilizer tips which I can make in my home.

Plants need to reach maturity before they can bloom. It may just need some more time to get to to the age where it can bloom.

You can also make sure that the plant is getting at least 5 hours of sunlight a day and give it some bone meal to add phosphorous. Sometimes if a plant is lacking phosphorous, it has trouble blooming.
