ixora plant

Zone Corpus Christi, Texas | Gatorthumb added on October 11, 2015 | Answered

I have an Ixora in a container and it only has 5/6 spindly branches and doesn't bloom. How do I get it to more of a shrub (fuller looking) and to produce flowers? I live in South Texas and the plants are south facing on a porch in 2-3 gallon planter pots.

There can be a few reasons for the lack of growth and blooms.

Ixora need full sun locations.

Your plants also may not have a large enough pot to grow in and do not have the correct soil content for good growth.

Ixora have some specific growing and nutrition needs.
