Okay, so what is the trick to getting this darn plant to bloom? I started mine from seed a couple years ago. I've got three of them in a big hanging basket, and three in a window box on my deck rail. Since they're not hardy here, I bring them inside over the winter. They've grown into huge, lush plants but they've never gotten even *one* single bloom. During the summer, I feed them with Miracle Gro Bloom Booster a couple times a month, but still nothing. They get about six hours of direct sunlight, the most I can provide since I live in the woods. They're on my list of plants that I "threaten" by telling them, "If you don't bloom this year, you're toast!" If anyone can tell me how to get them to bloom, please send me a private message. Thanks!
