Greetings, Green Thumbs!
The first photo I've included, from Tuesday, shows you my glorious new hibiscus tree, affectionately named Hollyanna; the second photo, from Thursday, shows her again, nearly dead. So, you'd like to know what on earth happened in the interim? On Tuesday night, I inadvertently watered the tree with what was clearly an excessive concentration of Miracle Grow All-Purpose Plant Food. By the following morning, my stunning girl looked like a crime scene.
My query for you guys:
Can ANYTHING be done to save this plant? I had not yet potted her, and I've not watered her since the mishap occurred; I have no idea what to do.
The hibiscus was a special gift that I received last week from my mom. Believe it or not, I immediately researched how to properly care for her, and I took care to deadhead all of her spent blooms. The plant rewarded my efforts with a massive explosion of the most exquisite blooms, which was the reason I took the photo on Tuesday. I texted it to my mom so she could see how spectacular my girl looked.
If anyone can advise me on how to save this plant, I'd be just INCREDIBLY grateful. On the other hand, if my mistake was truly a fatal one, I'd like to know that, too.
My sincerest gratitude,
(Miss Blackest-Black Thumb)
