Q.angel trumpets that don’t bud

Zone 7-8 | gordon hebert added on July 30, 2014 | Answered

Combined two angel trumpets in the same large pot for the first time and although they have produced wonderful foliage, they won’t bud. Have produced great trumpets in the past with the same watering and fertilizing routine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

When flowering plants don't flower, the cause is usually one of three things. Many plants need to have a certain amount of age, and developed root systems, before they can flower. If you recently repotted yours, they could still be concentrating on their roots. Another is light -- there may be enough light to support leaves but not flowers. A third is too much nitrogen/not enough phosphorous in the soil; you can add extra phosphorous in the form of bone meal, or use high-phosphorous fertilizer.
