Q.My Morning Glories Only Bloom For 3-4 Hours And Then The Bloom Dies. Why?

Zone Irvine, California, Gardening zone 10a and 10b | Anonymous added on March 29, 2021 | Answered

I grew them from seed and they climb on a metal trellis. The summers here are very hot and I was thinking it was too much sun. I feed with Shultz Plus 10-15-10 in water when I water once a week. I water till it begins to drain through the holes in the big pot. The leaves start to wilt in the strong sun. I really do want to grow these, but I need help with this problem. I don’t have a picture as we pulled them and hope to start over.

This is normal morning glory behavior. The blossoms open in the morning and drop by evening time. On cloudy days they may not open at all. It's the nature of the plant. It sounds like you're taking good care of the plant. I would water more though if the leaves are wilting and the sun is hot.
