Fuchsia Plants


Lilbit added on June 2, 2012 | Answered

I have it in a hanging basket. It just does not seem to be getting any fuller, it is sort of “spindley” looking. I have been watering it daily, feeding about every two weeks. I previously had it hanging in the morning sun of about four hours, it brought on a wilted look, so I have had it on the shaded side of the porch for a few weeks now, which improved, but still just seems not thickening up.

These plants do best in part sun. This should help with the legginess. Also, the plant may simply need to be trimmed back a bit to promote new growth.
