Q.Chenille Plant Blooms Became Narrow and Short, How to Correct

Zone Michigan USA | Pharmic1975 added on September 23, 2012 | Answered

Got our plant this spring, had fat long blooms. It got hot here and the blooms became short and thin. The plant was very healthy, watered often when soil appeared dry. Fertilized every couple of waterings. Tried to trim the plant back to promote growth, plant great no change in the blooms. Any suggestions as to how we could get larger fatter blooms?

Try adding some phosphorus rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil.
