Why have my plants stopped growing and failed to flower?
Posted by Suttons Staff on 23 December 2014 02:15 PM

Blindness is the result of a malfunction or absence of the growing point. The plants stop growing or may fail to flower. There are a number of possible causes which include attack by pest and disease, water logged or dry soil conditions. In some plants nutrient deficiency or imbalance can cause some plants to fail to flower. It can be a common problem in brassicas, especially Broccoli and Cauliflowers, and is usually the result of the plants receiving a cold spell at a critical stage of their development. The most common ornamental plants affected are plants grown from bulbs such as Hyacinths, Narcissus and Tulips. Bulbs may also fail to flower if high temperatures occur after lifting or while in storage.
