The buds on my wishbone plant are not blossoming. There are some white spots on the leaves as well.

Torenia is prone to powdery mildew and root rot. The plant prefers consistently damp but not soggy soil and part shade. If your plant hasn't been repotted in the past 3 months, start with repotting and going up one pot size. Don't use potting mix with added fertilizer which is formulated for outdoor summer plants. Assess the roots for rot and adjust your watering practices as needed. Use a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 at half the recommended rate. If your plant seems to be recovering but still not blooming, consider supplemental light.
