Q.caring for an esperenza plant

Zone Central Texas | kims added on July 14, 2012 | Answered

I purchased an esperenza plant a couple of weeks ago. I put it in a large pot on my patio deck that receives sun most of the day. It has lost a lot of the blooms, my guess is that it shocked it when I repotted it. Am I correct? Also, I wanted to try to propagate it and I was reading that you use the seed pods. Are those found where the blooms are?

Yes, it is likely suffering from shock but should bounce back once it acclimates. And yes, the seed pods are in the spent blooms. However, the plant can also be easily propagated through cuttings.
