My bird of paradise is about 10 years oldand has never bloomed. The frangipani is about that age and has only bloomed once.

I fertilized with the miraclegrow etc bloom fertilizer and just get more foliage.

The soil is very acid due to nearby oak trees.

The amount of sun the plants are getting can affect bloom. Let me also refer you to the following web sites for a lot more growing tips on these plants. This may help you determine what your plants are lacking:
