Hibiscus blooms do not open

Zone 33701 | Cbond7 added on November 8, 2016 | Answered

My hibiscus has stopped blooming. It has many buds ready to open but have not done so. I have never had this happen with hibiscus before. It is in a container on my open balcony. Any treatment suggestions?

This is a common problem with hibiscus, and the plants seem to show this behavior whenever they are under stress. Make sure the watering schedule, light level, and temperature ae adequate. Also check the plant for the pests mentioned in this article:
