I have had a Angel Trumpet plant for a few years and it has yet to produce a flower. Right now it stands close to 3 1/2 feet tall with a lot of greenery. It stands in a large pot which I water on an average of every other day. It is fertilized once a month. How do I get it to flower?

These plants need warm weather (80 degrees and up), full sun and high humidity to do their best along with evenly moist soil (during the growing season) and a generous fertilization program. The American Datura and Brugmansia Society recommends fertilizer with 12-20% nitrogen, 3-6% phosphorous and 8-12% potassium. These are the three numbers listed on the label of any fertilizer sold, and they are listed in the same order of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium or N, P, K. You may want to try gradually increasing your fertilizer program during the active growing season. Also make sure your plant is getting sufficient sunlight. Good luck!
