Q.Potted Hibiscus Doesn’t Bloom

tar added on July 3, 2011 | Answered

I’ve had a potted Hibiscus for 2 years. I put it on my deck in the summer and it doesn’t bloom. What can I do to have it bloom? When I bought it, there were beautiful yellow with red inlay flowers on it. After they fell off, no blooms. My other hibiscus are great. I live in Michigan. Help!

It may be lacking phosphorous. If you have not fertilized it, you can give it a balanced fertilizer. If you have fertilized it, bone meal or some other phosphorous rich fertilizer will help.
