Flowering Maple

Flowering Maple
Posted by Gretchen Johnson from NY on 2002-03-13 14:21:00

I have a flowering maple house plant that I have had since fall. It's doing wonderfully except the buds drop. It gets lots of buds, but they all drop before they open. Help?

    Sudden temperature is the most common cause of Abutilon bud drop. Inadequate light and allowing the soil to get too dry will also cause bud drop.
