Fuchsia leaves and flowers

Zone Central coast , california | Chrisnvern added on July 7, 2015 | Answered

My potted fuchsia plant has an over abundance of large flowers and really small leaves. All my other fuchsia plants are doing great. Can you help? Also, after a flower has bloomed, there remains a small green berry like growth (from the flower itself). If left on the plant, it grows into a large deep purple berry. Should it be left on the plant?

There are many varieties of Fuchsia, some have different size flowers and leaves.
Deadhead the plant to help continue the blooming and fertilize the plant throughout the growing season to help it replace the depleted nutrients.
The small green ball left after the flower fades is actually the flowers ovary. You can pinch it off in the deadhead process.
Here are some links for you.
