Lesser Bougainvillea care for not blooming

The Lesser bougainvillea may grow leaves without flowering because of insufficient light, which makes the Lesser bougainvillea unable to carry out sufficient photosynthesis. In this case, the Lesser bougainvillea should be moved to a place with better light conditions. In addition, excessive watering can also cause the Lesser Bougainvillea to fail to bloom. It is recommended to reduce the amount of watering to begin one month before the Lesser Bougainvillea blossoms. Lack of nutrients and space are also common reasons Lesser Bougainvillea does not bloom. The following are details of Lesser Bougainvillea care for not blooming.

1. Light care

Lack of light is one of the main reasons for Lesser Bougainvillea not to blossom and grow leaves. A Lesser Bougainvillea needs sufficient light to blossom normally, and will not blossom if it is kept in a dark environment for a long time. When we care for Lesser Bougainvillea, the Lesser Bougainvillea needs to be moved to a place with better light conditions in time, so that the Lesser Bougainvillea can Flower normally with more than 8 hours of light per day.

2. Watering care

Although Lesser Bougainvillea is a plant fond of a humid environment, if the plant is watered too much before flowering, a large amount of residual water in the soil will also affect the normal flowering of Lesser Bougainvillea. When we care for Lesser Bougainvillea, it is recommended to reduce the frequency of watering one month before the flowering of the Lesser Bougainvillea. It is appropriate to wait until the leaves of the Lesser Bougainvillea are wrinkled before watering each time.

3. Nutrients care

Nutrient deficiency is also a common reason for Lesser Bougainvillea to grow leaves without flowering. When we care for Lesser Bougainvillea, phosphorus and potash fertilizer should be properly supplemented during flowering period, and the principle of "frequent application of thin fertilizer" should be followed when applying fertilizer. Care should also be taken not to apply too much nitrogen, as the Lesser Bougainvillea's nutrients will mainly be supplied to the branches and leaves, which may lead to non-flowering.

4. Enough space

The root system of Lesser Bougainvillea is very developed, so the growth of Lesser Bougainvillea is very fast. If the flowerpot of Lesser Bougainvillea is small, the growth of Lesser Bougainvillea will be poor due to the small growth space. When we care for Lesser Bougainvillea, Lesser Bougainvillea should be maintained in a larger flowerpot in time to provide enough growth space for Lesser Bougainvillea.
