Post #380584

I recently bought a hibiscus from a nursery that was being trained to grow like a tree. It has a nice long "trunk" and nice bushy foliage on top. The only problem is that it hasn't produced any blooms. I've had it in the ground for about two months. I noticed that it had been topped, and many of the branches had been pruned at the ends. I guess that was done to promote more of the bushlike growth at the top of the plant.

The other hibiscus I bought, although of a different variety, has already bloomed. Any suggestions on what I can do to help this plant bloom? What is a good food for hibiscus?
