The Q&A Archives: Hybiscus

Question: I sprayed my hibiscus for leaf eaten critters. The product which was an insect killer safe for plants and vegetables has now turned my hybiscus leave yellow. What can I do and are my babies gonna die now? PLEASE HELP ME.


Answer: Connie,

There is nothing to do now but wait and see. The plant may leaf out again. It could be that the cause of the yellowing was not the spray but rather soil conditions around the roots that were either dry or soggy wet for a time. Watch to keep the soil just moist and give the plant time to see if it can recover.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
