Here we have to even water our plants twice a day on some hot days now or daily. With the climate at your place I think you will have to increase the waterings.

1) watering during afternoons or hot times when the leaves are hot and you sprinkle water over them.
2) Too much fertilizer in soil for getting many blooms.
3) Tiny black insects eating up, observe the back side of the plant for black eggs. wash the plant thoroughly and remove all eggs.
4) sign of distress, change of place or environment.
5) Usually when there are new green leaves coming up there is no need to worry.

We have lost many plants due to either over watering or under watering. The last one had loved a small sneaky corner of the garden and loved this place. It later on went to bloom but without fragrance. The nourishment also has to be taken care of as too much again puts the plant in distress and leaves start yellowing and dropping, at such times water the plant regularly to wash off the excess fertilizer faster so that the plant recovers fast.
While the mogra plant has taken to full blooming loaded with lots of fragrant flowers so also the rajni gandha, tube rose, with its long elongated flowering stem, it is sad that we lost our orange plant which was with us for many many years. Will have to wait if lucky that the seeds may spring up with a surprise in rains. The hot season does require special care for the plants and though now I have selected plants judiciously and grown in large containers only those that can grow well and absorb the direct heat during Thane summers! the anthuriums have burst into lovely exotic pink flowers and the peace lily is about to burst with beautiful serene white hood like blooms. but still the obsessive gardener indulges in impulsive shopping of flowering plants and many small planters find a place in unknown spots in our garden and learn to survive among the family.
