Spider mites or other problem
I would like to find out what is the cause of tiny yellow spots found on a few of the green leaves on my hibiscus plant. I tried spraying with an insecticide (white oil) because I suspect it's spider mites but the leaves still continue to turn green with yellow tiny spots again. What might the problem be? Is it spider mites, overfertilizing, overwatering or other problem? Thanks.
