Problems With Hibiscus Plants

I have recently potted two hibiscus plants in my balcony. The one with the pink flowers has not given a single bud in 3 weeks. Also the leaves of this plant have holes in them. What can I do to prevent the holes?


The yellow one gives one flower in a week. Three days back it had some 5 new buds, but the very next day all the buds had suddenly disappeared. What can be causing this?

The Hibiscus Plant is a very hungry one! It needs a lot to eat. I started giving my Hibiscus brewed warm, black coffee. And it loved it! It quickly showed improvement. I will continue with the brewed coffee till I get it some plant food. It began blooming just with the coffee.
