1. Hibiscus Blooms

Asked by Anonymous - July 27, 2011

Most of my potted hibiscus are making buds that fall off just prior to blooming. The budding is very prolific but flowering is limited. Used a slow release 10-10-10 fertilizer this spring, and growth has been good. Leaves are a healthy green. Water twice a week with thorough soaking. Live in Savannah, Georgia where the temperature runs a humid 90+ degrees. Will appreciate anything you have on how to keep the buds from falling off.

5. 1 of 5 Hibiscus Plants Losing All Its Leaves

Asked by Anonymous - July 28, 2011

I have five hibiscus plants in the front of my house. Four of them are fine. However, the leaves began turning yellow and falling off on only one of them. I gave it extra fertilizer and water, but now the branches are basically bare. I checked it for bugs and do not see any. I do not understand why this one is having problems when conditions for all five are the same. It looks as though new leaves are sprouting on the branches, but I am not sure they will continue to grow. It was still producing flowers for a time, but then the buds dry up. I don’t know what to do to help it and it looks absolutely terrible.
