Our bougainvillea plants look distressed.
Earlier this year we purchased six bougainvillea plants, and have kept them in their original pots. We realize that the plants love a crowded and dense surrounding, and therefore have not transplanted them. We are using them as hanging plants, and keep them in sunny areas. However, all six plants seem to be distressed. They have lost a lot of their leaves and flowers. We water them only when the soil appears dry to the touch. What should we be doing that we are not doing?
Stop watering them. Bougainvillea should not be watered regularly past the first month in a new setting. Are you fertilizing? Too much nitrogen can also cause them to stop blooming.
