Spiraling #Whiteflies LOVE this #Hibiscus rosa-sinensis for some reason. I have such an #infestation including #blackmold that I have chosen to chop all but the bottom of the bush off. The white fuzzy is called flocculent material and it flies all around as the leaves are moved. 😷 Spring will bring it back. #chelseachop #hibiscus-rosa-sinensis #insects #gardenpest #Aleurodicus-dispersus #southerncalifornia 6 February 2020
Probably because of our different growing zones, my Hibiscus are generally pest free, so I am not of great help. However, when I get black mould (from ants), on Gardenia and Lemon tree, I clean every leaf and stem with a toothbrush dipped in weak seaweed foliage feed. Blackfly get a spray of Eco oil, will work on white fly.
@thecullenabellon as Terry - @moore.794 says, #neem oil works very well. It is natural too. The one thing that is important to remember, though, is that it is an oil and therefore will burn the leaves/plant if the sun beats on it. Yes, do not let yours go like I did. 😒
