Could someone please advise me what I'm doing wrong .
This was once a very happy firecracker plant but I over fertilised once a long time back and it has never fully recovered.

Welcome! I can't help you but I'd be very happy to have one that looked that good! I've killed a few. What plant zone are you in? You can add that to your profile.

Hi Shane, you are lucky to live where it should do well. It looks like it is on an outdoor covered patio or porch?
Here is a zone chart you can look at.

I hope someone who grows this plant will come by soon.
