Have planted habanero chili plants. They have grown but have not yet bloomed. Is there something I should do? They are in sunlight much of the day and get plenty of water and fertilizer. Help!

I would give them a little more time. Also, it would not hurt to give them some phosphorous, to encourage blooms. Check what kind of fertilizer you used in the past on them. You want something that has a first number that is lower than or equal to the last. This is because the nitrogen (the first number) can overwhelm the phosphorous (the last number) and inhibit blooming.
