Plant SurvivalWednesday, June 02, 2010
My hibiscus was heavily infested with mealy bugs. In fact, most of its leaves were gone. But I was so glad to see that the plant has re-bloomed although the flower is now much smaller in size. All in the plant took about 4 months to recover and rebloom!
The white flies that infested my Mexican Sunflower left. But below were the last few blooms...
Although not infested by white flies, the fate of my cosmos turn out to be the same.
Both the Mexican Sunflower and Cosmos Bright Eyes grew to be quite tall. Later when the old leaves dried up the plants did not look nice anymore. Hence, I discarded them to make room for new plants. Between the two, I like the Mexican Sunflower more as their flowers were really striking!
