    Hi @SteveDemp , it has certainly grown a lot! The first thing I thought when I saw the pictures was sun scorch from water drops too.

    Brugmansia are VERY hungry plants. I would recommend feeding Brugs at least twice a week with liquid tomato feed from early May – late September. This will encourage strong growth and encourage flowering. Flowering usually occurs in mid/late summer for most Brugmansia. The precursor to blooms is noticing when the branches split into a ‘Y’ shape. After this growth type flower buds usually follow. Make sure to keep the soil nice and moist in all this hot weather too.

    I hope that helps?
