How to get Hibiscus HousePlants to Bloom?

How do I get my Hibiscus HousePlants to get flowers? Annie

Hi Annie,

Using the right fertilizer is very important if you want Hibiscus HousePlants to produce flowers. You may be using a plant food that has too much nitrogen and not enough potassium. The first number on a fertilizer represents nitrogen, the second number phosphorous, and the third number potassium. 10-10-10 is a basic balanced plant food. Look for a fertilizer that is 10-5-15, one high in potassium. Also, giving Hibiscus HousePlants more sun, pruning them frequently, and keeping them root bound in smaller pots helps them to produce more flowers.
