Usually, I would advise adding phosphorus and potassium, but in this case- These plants prefer acidic soil. Extra fertilization for this invasive species will cause extra foliage growth, but little flowering.

This plant will not enjoy being in full sun. It will need partial shade, dappled light, or morning sun, only.

Well drained soil is a must, as well. Wet soils will prevent the plant from carrying out its processes.
