Bunchosia argentea

Is there a way to encourage a peanut butter bush to flower? I have a plant that is around 4 years old and 1.6 or so metres high and receives sun for most of the day. It has never shown any inclination to flower, so I'm obviously not providing something that it needs.

Hi Pam,
Buy some liquid Potash, and spray per directions. (I think it's a Searles product).
Liquid potash contains phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) fertilizer, which will help it flower.

Some lost tags in a few pots of seedlings here .. Pretty sure this is Bunchosia .. The white stem could be a giveaway .

Could also be coffee. Did you plant any of that?
Be patient - this time next month I will peruse them personally and let you have the benefit of my wisdom! Uncle Les also has much wisdom concerning bunchosias.

Poor old Thrice Accursed One. Not bunchosia, not coffee. Probably some obscure tropical ornamental of the sort he fills his time with.

In discussion, we did note that several local bunchosias which were quite (annoyingly) productive are now in full shade and no longer producing fruit. They're OK for a bit of a talking point, but a bit of a weed as well.
