Re: New Wisteria owner needs advice Hi all.. Now I have lots of questions .. first of all I live in Hawaii ..Big Island .. Hilo side.. and a friend sent me a Japanese Wisteria plant around 4 yrs ago. We live in an area with LOTS of lava rock and so I potted it in a pot.. Every year it sheds its leaves and then leaves come back .. right now there are lots of leaves..NO blooms..my husband made a trellis of chicken wire and bamboo posts .. and after reading about what to use for support i can see we made our first boo boo.. I have NO idea WHERE or WHEN to prune it either.. I wanted to send a picture of it but can't find a thingy here of where to go to post a picture..another thing we are doing wrong is the trellis is leaning against the roof and the wisiteria is up to the roof now.. I was told not long ago that i must have a boy wisteria plant as it doesn't bloom.. a girl wisteria is needed to flower.. someone is most likely pulling my leg here about this but I emailed my friend in GA who sent me the plant and asked if she could send me a cutting of her wisteria as it blooms every year.. so she did ... I have three cuttings that I received this Friday and we put rootone all three and they are in a pot next to the original wisteria.. I NEED HELP REALLY BAD!!! Thanks!!
