Why Is My Mandarin Not Blooming?

“Why is my Mandevilla not blooming?” This is a common question from many gardeners who are experiencing low production and wanting to know if there is anything they can do to help. In order for your flowers to blossom, you must have an adequate amount of Hydrogen peroxide in the soil. However, many people will find themselves wondering why is my mandarin not growing like it normally does. In this article I will explain what causes this ailment, and then offer a simple solution for your blooming concern.

The first cause that many gardeners will seek to understand is that it is due to overwatering. Overwatering will result in your flowers drying out and eventually dying. This is due to the fact that your buds are unable to absorb enough water in order to keep the soil moist enough for the blooming to occur. When the buds dry out the entire plant will eventually wilt.

To combat this problem, simply make sure you do not over water your plants. If you do need to use water make sure you use distilled or purified water and make sure to saturate the soil prior to planting. In addition you should avoid putting your buds directly into water. As much as possible you should try to let them sit in cool (but not cold) water, which will prevent your plant from drying out. After the plant has had a chance to recover from overheating it is a good time to give it a watering.

Another possible reason why your blooming flower buds have not yet started to bloom is because of the existence of too many aphids. Aphids, just like every other pest, are perfectly happy to eat your lovely rose bush. If you do not treat your plant(s) after an outbreak of these pests, then you will soon find that your lovely roses will be doing without its beautiful blooms. To keep aphid infestations at bay, the best way is to use a preventative approach. The easiest way to do this is to grow your garden in an area where there are no other garden pests, such as along the perimeter of your home.

Of course, even with the most efficient anti-aphid treatment, sometimes there will still be an outbreak. What can you do if your lovely plants suddenly have not produced any flowers for weeks? Fortunately, there are a few alternate means of dealing with a plant that is having a tough time starting to bloom. The first method involves taking your flowers down to your local gardening store and discussing the issue with one of their experts. There is little doubt that your local garden center has a knowledgeable staff that is able to assist you in any manner that they feel necessary.

If that route does not work, the second option would be to have your greenhouse stocked with beneficial insects. There are several that are known to keep the population of aphids under control, so there is no need to worry if there is a reduction in blooming from whatever reason. One of the best types of Beneficial Insects for garden plants is called Mantis shrimp. These creatures are oval-shaped and about three to five times as large as a cricket.

They are oval, about two to three inches long, and have tiny red antennae on their heads. The Mantis shrimp’s job is to eat the leaves of the plant it is eating, thus keeping the plant healthy and blooming. They love feeding on new shoots and leaves, which are especially good during the growing season. Once the plant gets started, the Mantis shrimp will quickly start removing dead leaves and making sure nothing is blocking their access to the plant.

When you are wondering “Why is my mandarin not blooming?” consider the natural enemies that help the blooming of the plants. A healthy mandarin will have healthy flowers. If your mandarin isn’t blooming, be sure to take it to a local garden center to find out what is wrong with it and how you can correct the problem.
