I have bogunvilla plants - 2 of them flower but 1 plant does'nt flower

India In

The one which does'nt flower is potted . can anyone please suggest what must be wrong . we live in a warm climate , with ample sunlight



It'll be because its in a pot, if the others are flowering and they're not in pots, surely.

Try 'Bougainvillea', then put a pH meter in your soil - it works best with acidic. They also prefer to be slightly thirsty rather than being in soggy soil.
I've got about a dozen different varieties flowering in pots..... I'll put up a photo.

BTW I'm envious of the plants you CAN grow!!
