Desert Rose – No Flowers

Anonymous added on March 16, 2011 | Answered

We received a desert rose plant for Christmas and to this date it has not flowered. Can you give us a reason why? It's kept in a big enough pot and at the end of our pergola. A friend suggested putting it in full sun, but it has completely flopped over in the pot since doing that.

I would try giving it some phosphorus. Without this nutrient, it would not be able to bloom. Here is more information:
