How to Get My Hibiscus to Bloom


Anonymous added on October 8, 2011 | Answered

I have a tropical hibiscus that I keep in a container in the house. It has plenty of light, water, drainage, etc. , but it has not bloomed for the last few years. Otherwise, it looks very healthy. Also, the leaves have lost their 'waxy' look. Please help!!

Give it some bloom booster fertilizer or bone meal. It likely lacks phosphorus, which it needs to produce blooms. This article has more information:
