Ice Plant Flowers


LConnor added on March 18, 2017 | Answered

We live in California. We brought a cutting of an ice plant from the coast to our front garden at our home in Bakersfield. The plant is thriving, and has taken over the whole front of our garden but for two years has not had one flower on it. Any ideas as to why it isn't flowering?

Make sure they are planted in an area that they receive enough sunlight.

You also may have too much nitrogen in the soil and it may be inhibiting the flowering.

You could have a simple soil test done at your County Extension Office.

If the nitrogen levels are high you can easily correct this with a phosphorous application such as Bone Meal or a bloom booster fertilizer.
