Glad we were able to diagnose the problme with your geraniums! As for your hibiscus, it's normal for some of the older leaves to turn yellow and fall off but new leaves will develop and take their places. The leaves usually turn bright yellow and then fall off. It's nothing to be concerned about. Hibiscus flowers on a particular cycle. It starts off with a flush of blooms and when they fade it rests for a few weeks before flowering again. Right now my hibiscus is not flowering but I think it will in about two weeks. I'd just be patient - your hibiscus will develop flowers again. Enjoy!
