Hibiscus Blooming Question

Anonymous added on August 23, 2012 | Answered

I have two potted hibiscus plants which did not flower this summer. I live in NJ and bought them last summer. I brought them inside prior to the first frost and they were then pruned and maintained inside until May of this year. Unfortunately, they did not bloom this year but have kept their leaves and have grown very strong. What do you think happened?

    It likely needs some more fertilizer, especially phosphorus which helps with blooming. Use a "bloom booster" fertilizer or add some bone meal to the soil to help add some phosphorus.
