Answer: This plant requires lots of sunshine and warm temperatures to do well, so make sure it is in a very sunny location -- sun all day is preferred. It also needs a rich soil, so make sure you are giving it a water soluble fertilizer intended for blooming plants at the correct rate according to the label instructions; you might also top dress with compost. Finally, make sure you water it generously to keep it in active growth -- keep the soil evenly moist. Be sure it is in a large enough pot to accommodate its growth, too. Blooming should increase as the season progresses and the temperatures rise.
