Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

It’s sooo red. Very pretty. I love them too!! I’m going to try to feed better I did get my Hybiscus all feed for spring with Hybiscus food. They don’t really require many feeding I think just twice a year. But I love how yours gave u such a huge bloom already. Great job🤗🤗😊💕

@johninbrighton Thanks. I never know how to take a good photo! They just happen accidentally!! 😂 I've always kept it indoors since I was given it as a present. It's quite a thirsty plant and I've neglected it at times but now it's rewarded me with two flowers in the space of a couple of months, I'm determined to look after it better now!! 😊

27/09/18 a new flower bud yay! Some light in a dark week, where my mum has been given a cancer diagnosis. I know many others on here are/have been in similar situations. It sucks!! So feeling very low at the moment but need to remain positive. To top it off, I'm full of flu and feel crap!! Hope this #hibiscus bud does better than the last one which fell off after an aphid attack!

Thanks @cyndi still waiting for a final plan of action but definitely an operation to remove either part or all of a kidney. No idea what other treatment she'll need after yet. Worrying thing is they've also found something smaller in her other kidney. 😔

Thanks @ublaszko Really hoping an operation will remove it and nothing else needed but it's such a horrible disease. Need to keep myself positive. Hoping gardening can help with that 😊

Hibiscus should flower in full Sun and Moist Soil. However it is Mealybugs suspectible plant hence it is likely to be attacked again. You can continue treatment if you see reoccurence

My hibiscus has not flowered for several years now. I reckon it is over ten years old at least and it used to bloom really well. #advice. I have seen a few of these white bugs, circled. What are they? Are they stopping it flowering? Any #advice-hibiscus #hibiscus welcome.

From pic alone it looks like an aphid. And hibiscus loves acidic soil.. I give mine orchid food or even some food you would feed camillas or hydrangea. Take a look at my tropical it bloomed indoors almost all winter even tho it should not have. Lol and its filled with buds this year. And its in a container.

@cyndi Thanks. I might try giving it a tiny bit of orchid food and see if it helps! I love the flowers of this hibiscus so really hoping I can get it going again!
