    Hibiscus or no??

    Hello everyone. Any idea if this really is a tropical hibiscus or not. I bought "hibiscus" seeds on the WISH app and this is some of what's growing out. Chuck had kindly pointed out on another forum that some of what I was growing out are actually flowering okra but these have a different growth...

    Crystals on Hibiscus stems and leaves

    I added a bit of iron in the potting mix when they were repotted 6 months ago. Also tried a bit of mag sulfate to rule out mag deficiency and that didnt have an effect.

    Crystals on Hibiscus stems and leaves

    Thanks again for all of your help Chuck. Ordering Spinosad on Friday - cant find it locally. One of my larger hibiscus now has several yellow and yellowing leaves. Is this a symptom of the parasites or something else you think?? All of my larger hibiscus have been slowly losing leaves since last...

    Hey Chuck. What do you think these plants are?? They were also sold on WISH as "hibiscus" seeds.

    I posted on another forum quite a while back and they said my use of the neem oil was causing the problems:( Could have had this all fixed a long time ago.

    Thank you again. Had you not mentioned it I wouldnt have looked at the plants so closely and wouldnt have found the parasites. I gave everything a good spray of neem oil and tomorrow I'll do a drench and get spinosad. Thank you so much!!

    Just looking at the one hibiscus that seems to be doing the best and found these guys. Opened up the new growth leaf and there they were. Also a bit of a web. Spidermites?? This leaf they're on is about a half inch long.

    Thank you! I'll get some spinosad tomorrow. Many of the blossoms have fallen off before opening but I wasnt sure why. Just thought maybe it's the wrong time of year for blossoms and the plant just dropped them. How often should I use the spinosad and neem oil?? I'll do the neem oil drench in...

    Crystals on Hibiscus stems and leaves

    I bought some larger hibiscus from a retailer about 9 months ago and I've noticed that they seem to have burnt tips on the new growth. Is this parasites as well?? Do you have a recommendation of a brand of spinosad formula? Or where to get it. Cant find where to update my profile. I'm in...

    Crystals on Hibiscus stems and leaves

    I too thought the plants looked odd. They are from seeds I ordered from the WISH app. LOL!! Many came from Asian countries and some from the Netherlands. All the seeds looked like hibiscus seeds but I'm sure many seeds look alike. Itll be interesting to see if they flower and what they grow out...

    Crystals on Hibiscus stems and leaves

    I've never seen any insects/pests and these plants have done this for their entire life. Can these be excretions from the plant??

    Crystals on Hibiscus stems and leaves

    Hello. I have been growing some tropical hibiscus in an indoor grow tent. All of them have these little crystal like excretions on the stems and underside of leaves. They can be popped and have a wet sticky residue. No sign of any parasites. Is this an indication I'm doing something wrong?
