I went out to check my brugs this morning as I do every day and on my back patio every leaf on my brugs were black, and hanging down, also on four Plumaria plants, only thing I can think of is the fact that we have had so much rain, I took off all the leaves and buds, not sure if the plants will make it or not, guess I had an animal there too as one large bucket of dirt I keep there was all rooted out on the ground.I had taken the bottom of the pots to allow the water to go right through, anywy not sure I can save the plants.

Doris, tears of sadness. Maybe you should try to make a start of it in case you loose it.

Took my morning stroll through the garden and there are japaneese beetles everywhere. They jump on you and in your hair, it's gross.
Sunday there was a beetle on just about every flower and leaf in my garden. Today there were at least five on each leaf (that still exsist, many of them are lace now). At least they won't kill the plants only make em ugly.

Is there any way you can cut them off past the rotting tissue to good and start them over, Doris? I would try that before I threw them away. Cut it off and let it dry and heal over them try to re-root them.If it is not too late.

This is what the leaves looked like, after stripping them all off I found the stems had some live green shoots so I repotted them

The Electric co. goes around this time of year spraying, they were here about a week ago.
The railroad does too and sometimes the wind drifts it to any plant in its lineof flow.

For those of you that have japanese beetles, go to amazon.com and buy some milky spore. It is cheaper there. it really helps get rid of those nasty bugs. It is pricey, but alittle goes a long way!

Milky spoor is good stuff, but jap beetles just fly in from next door. I've heard that four oclocks deter them.

You're sure having trials lately, Doris, hang in there!

I don't know how closely related June Bugs (really beetles) are to Japanese Beatles, but I have four o'clocks around the yard that aren't keeping the June Bugs away.

Doris, I can really sympathize with you and your Brugs. I've had health issues of one type or another for the past full year that have kept me from taking good care of my Brugs. I lost a fair number of them in January during a power outage. The heat and exceptional drought have taken their toll as well. I have been able to get a little inexperienced help often enough that what Brugs I have left are alive although barely growing. I will be thankful if I can keep them alive until I get well enough to resume their care. Right now, I am recovering from back surgery so it may be a while.

Gee Betty I lost this thread and just found it here, sorry about your back problems, that has to be the worst for caring for plants, I miss my brugs so much I have started looking for some, I would like to find larger ones as cuttings take a long time to bloom, so if anyone reading this has BRUGS to sell please let me know. thank you.
