The Q&A Archives: Non-blooming Potato Vine

Question: My potato vine gets plenty of sun, but will not bloom. Any suggestions?

Answer: Solanum jasminoides, the potato vine, grows in full sun to part shade, and blooms best during the hottest months of the summer. Make sure your plant receives adequate water, and hold off on fertilizer. If you haven't pinched or pruned it back, try doing so now; this plant flowers on new shoots and stems. Best wishes with your potato vine!
