I have 2 crown of thorns plants.one red one yellow ole yeller is doing fine and dandy blooming his lil heart out.ole red now he ain't gave me a sigle bloom yet this year...I even switched his perch with ole yeller.I keep hitting him with fertilizer regular like(or close to reg for me)I re potted both of them into larger pot...both are actaly same size(hanging basket with wires broke off...accident not intentional)Its got new growth about the same as other.I'm STUMPPED.Here i been waiting all winter for spring to get here to see if can get any seed pods out of them blooming together and ole red....I'd swear he needs some viagra or something.They get some morning sun for about 4 hours....unless it rains& the rain don't drown um...under awning,but get wet still.
Thx!

You grabbed my attention with that [Big Grin] Would'nt that be something, a little blue pill to make all your plants stand up straight and tall [Big Grin]

What are you feeding him? Crown of Thorns should only get 1/2 strength "bloom" type fertilizer once a month IF they are actively growing.

Well I buy the huge sized box of miricle grow fertilizer think it had home and garden on it.I don't have the box anymore.I just pull the bags out of box and they go into a plastic bag and 1 bag usually lasts all month.I can tell you I use 1/4 cup to 5 gallons of water.I haven't used the peters on them or my AV fertilizer which I do have mixed as half strength.
i'll cut her off for 3 weeks& use a half strength mix/
I did check her over for bugs today and seen none but played smash bug on cannas.no leaf rolling this week.
so bill would you say go with a low nit fert?

I sure could go for a viagra type pill to make plants stand up.I could name a few who could really use it....#1 my spiderworts(my corroal with wire& string failed and looks like crap & didn't even serve its purpose really)
