I have heard that it works with bacopa, and petunias, but am not sure about million bells and lobelia. It might be worth a try. Perhaps just cut back some of each and see what happens.

I cut back a few stems every so often and it keeps things looking fresh, especially the wave petunias but it also works with those little yellow daisies and verbena. I bought a really cheap (50 cent) hanging basket and cut back most of the hanging down plants and they seem to be doing really well now after a couple of weekly waterings with Miracle Grow.
