Hi,

I have trouble getting my chrysanthemums to bloom again Cry

 

Background

During start of November,2012 i purchased 7 chrysanthemum plants and they did bloom well till late december.

They were placed(in containers with compost and red soil)under full shade during this period.I now moved them to  a terrace and placed them under a 50% shade net.

 

 

Problem:

1.The plants(all of them) ceased to bloom.Is this because of off-season?.

Also i noticed that very few new shoots are growing.Also the foliage isnt much either(barely 3-5 shoots with each shoot having close to 10 leaves)

 

My approach (with limited knowledge that i have)

I am contemplating on feeding these with heavy nitrogen(25:10:15) for couple of months and later switch to Phosphorous/Potassium(8:25:25).I am hoping that this will increase the foliage through N and later increase buds/flowers through P,K. 

Do you guys think this will work.

 

Also is switching between heavy "N" and "P/K" respectively for more foliage and subsequent flowers be detrimenatal to the plant?.

Hi Bhavani,

I do have couple of mums.They always enjoy good amount of sunlight.I feel that as the plants were kept in the shade,it affected the growth.If the plant seems to be weak,it is better to keep it in the sun and wait till it thrives.Do apply the fertilizer meagerly once it starts to grow.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

malini.

Hi Malini,

Thank you for your advise.I will place them under direct sunlight.

Could you also let me know the blooming season for mums?(I was told that mums bloom all year round in bangalore's climate ..is that true?)

Any suggestion on the type of fertilizers during non flowering seasons.

Hi Bhavani,

mums do bloom year round.After it blooms,cut the old flowers and the stems to enhance further growth.They are really easy to grow and any organic or chemical fertilizers can be used .see to that the nitrogen content is more when it is growing and when buds start to come ,potash is more. 

regards,

malini
