Why Are My Hibiscus Buds Falling Off?

Zone 4 | martinrick49 added on July 27, 2011 | Answered

I have a very healthy hibiscus plant in a pot. It has a lot of buds, but when they start to open, they fall off. The cut is very clean, so I don't know what's happening. Can someone help?

    It sound like you have a problem with insects, probably thrips. Please see this article for more information:
