Canna Lily not growing

Zone 39503 | Gambit added on August 28, 2019 | Answered

I recently received a Canna Lily as a gift. I love the plant! After researching, I found out that they should be divided from time to time. So my plant quickly became 4'. The smallest one is putting out more plants but is not growing itself. What did I do wrong?

It is very hard to say without seeing the plant, and where it sits. If the correct conditions are being provided, then they will grow easily, and without fuss.

I tried adding a photo but it wouldn't allow. Sorry for that. They're all in pots, on South side of my home. Some morning sun but almost all afternoon amd early evening sun. I live in Zone 9a. 2wks ago I was given 6 more, 3 green and 3 maroon leaded. The 4 I originally started with are green. All of them are growing new leaves, 3 have flowered with 1 flowering a 2nd time, 5 of them are spreading new growth in their pot but 2 of them are exactly the same when I received them. Not dying or wilting or changing colors, which I guess is a good thing, but strange that those 2 are about 1ft talk amd have stalled. The 1 with sprouting to planting
