Hibiscus: FOTD, Jan 16, 2019


Spied this beauty on my way back from the plaza this afternoon. It must be a triple, or at the very least a double.



Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Dec 13, 2018


This beauty greeted me when I left my kitchen this morning. It is dinner-plate sized!  But, I spotted foam on one of the leaf joints and saw a bud that had been chewed off and was lying on a leaf below.  Sure signs of spittle bugs.  Went to town to buy habanero chilis and garlic.  Blended 1/2 cup of the habaneros and 6 cloves of garlic with two cups of water and will leave for 24 hours, then combine with dish soap and spray on the plant.  A non-toxic to the environment (other than spittle bugs) solution to these hibiscus-eaters.

For Cee’s FOTD.
