Answer: If your soil is compacted and the roots have trouble penetrating, or if the soil is poor and there are few nutrients, eggplants will just sit there waiting until conditions to improve. Or if you've have rainy, muggy weather, they will suspend growth. It may be a combination of things. You can try a foliar feeding (Miracle Gro). As soon as all the growing conditions are just right your eggplants should grow well. Until then, there's nothing much you can do to encourage growth. Wish I had more ideas for you.
