WHY HIBICUS PLANT ISN'T OPENING.

Step 1
THE PROBLEM COULD BE INSECTS ESPECIALLY THRIP'S WHICH FEED OFF OF THE FLOWER,WHICH CAUSES THE BUDS TO FALL OFF BEFORE BLOOMING.

Step 2
THRIP'S ALSO LAY EGGS IN THE FLOWER CAUSING THEM TO TURN YELLOW.

Step 3
USE AN ORGANIC INSECTISIDE ONCE A WEEK.

THERE IS ALSO OTHER INSECTS TO WATCH FOR.
