I have 3 red powder puff plants that have stopped blooming. They are still having new growth ( leaves) although that has slowed also.
I have tried Miracle Gro fertilizer--what else should I do?

Powder puff plants usually flower all year around but their best display comes when temperatures are about 80F degrees. Too much nitrogen can result in lots of lush green growth, but sometimes at the expense of flowering so I'd hold off on feeding the plants, at least until next spring. Once the temperatures are favorable and any excess nitrogen has leached out of the soil, you should see lots of flowers appear on your plants. Enjoy!
