Dear friends,

I am growing flower plants in pots.

I am observing that plants have much bigger leaves than usual but much smaller flowers! Also Plants are not becoming tall much but leaves size is growing.

I am regularly providing garden mix to plants. Could this be because of some kind of nutrition imbalance?

Looks like there is good nitrogen in the soil and leaf is flourishing. Either that or lack of sunlight. I think it is ok, you can leave it like that and eventually it will correct itself out.

I had recently added BioFarm compost to plant. Also there are is only 3-4 hours of afternoon sunlight. My office has so many flowers for this size plant but mine are much lesser in size and number!

Any updates to your plants? I am facing the same phenomenon...

My Sunflower plant leaves are growing really big but no sign of flowers 🙁

Gardeningis a favorite hobby for many, especially mothers and home keepers. However, gardening today is no more done just for pleasure, but it is soon being accepted and recognized as an art and a talent. Not everyone has the capability to decorate their garden with wonderful plants and flowers.
