Why Is My Plant Not Flowering?

There are many reasons why a plant may not be blooming as you would like it to.  

The first thing you will want to figure out is when your plant typically blooms. Some plants bloom all year long, while others will only bloom during certain seasons.  

One reason your plant may not be blooming is because of the size of the plant. Some plants will not bloom until they reach a certain size or age. Most immature plants are working hard to grow larger and will put all their energy into producing roots, stems, and leaves, instead of flowers.  

Usually, the most common reason that a plant is not blooming is that it is not getting enough light. If your plant is looking leggy and pale, more than likely it is not getting enough light. You will want to move your plant into a place where it can get more light or place it under a grow light.

Another reason your plant may not be blooming is due to the lack of nutrients. Some potting mixes do not contain soil. Your potting mix may not contain soil, which means the plant is not getting the nutrients it needs to bloom. Also, the ingredients in the potting mix may not be providing your plant with the nutrients it needs. When your plant is actively growing, it will need to be fertilized regularly.  Follow the directions on the fertilizer container for the best results.
