Q.Mandeville And Hibiscus Blossoms Cut At The Stem
what would be cutting off my Mandeville blossoms right at the stem? They are being cut off after blooming. The hibiscus buds are cut off just before they are ready to open. Is this an insect or wildlife?
Your picture shows a white insect immediately below the unopened orange bloom but the camera is not close enough to identify it. Possibilities: aphids, scale or mealybugs. You can place one/few insect in a sealed, transparent, plastic bag and take it to your local garden center for identification.
