Osteospermum

I planted these osteospermum Akila White in a pot in a sunny position. It produced two lovely flowers the first few weeks - but nothing since. The stems have a reddish colour and look as though they have been partly "stripped". There are now one or two remaining buds - but they appear to be very hard and show no signs of opening. Is there anything I can do?

    I THINK YOUR PLANT HAS BEEN ATTACKED BY THRIPS OR SOME OTHER SAP SUCKING INSECT.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
