Why is my hibiscus not blooming?

The lack of blooming in hibiscus plants can be attributed to several factors.

Here are some common reasons why your hibiscus may not be blooming and tips to encourage flowering:

Insufficient Sunlight

Hibiscus plants require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Pruning Timing

Pruning at the wrong time can remove flower buds. Hibiscus should be pruned after flowering to avoid cutting off developing flower buds.

Age of the Plant

Young hibiscus plants may take time to mature and start flowering. Some hibiscus varieties may bloom once they are a few years old.

Nutrient Deficiencies

Lack of essential nutrients can affect flowering. Hibiscus plants benefit from regular feeding with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer.
