Tropical Plants/ixora

Question
my ixora is very thin on leaves.  I fertilized in march, but they just don't look good.  what do you suggest?

Answer
Hi Sheila, is it noticeably shedding leaves?...if it otherwise looks healthy, I wouldn't be too worried; Ixora will often produce a heavy bloom at the expense of greenery. If it is shedding more then normal, and there are not many blooms,  then there is a concern to what is stressing it. Nick
