Hello! I purchased a beautiful pre-grown 3.5-4 foot-high sapphire showers duranta from a local gardening store where they helped me pot it and pick out the proper soil. I was told the plant thrives in full sunlight, which it receives, and to only water twice a week. However, the leaves appear to be curling in and none of the flowers have bloomed — instead they have dried up. I cannot figure out what's wrong with this poor plant. Any suggestions?

You have moisture stress and I don't know which it is, over or under watering. When you water, make sure and water enough to get a tiny bit out the bottom of the pot, then stop, don't let the plant set in the drain tray of water. Then let the top 2 to 3 inches dry before watering again.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
