I have successfully propagated my Justicia carnea cultivars from cuttings. However, even though the new plants look very lush and healthy, they are not flowering. Anyone knows what I need to do to initiate flowering? Thanks in advance.

One of my favorite plants. It is extremely fragile in that the stems break off very easily, transplanting is tough, but cuttings root very easily during its growing season. A repeat and reliable bloomer.
