How to get rid of pests on Hibiscus?

🌺 How to get rid of pests on Hibiscus?

Hibiscus flowers are beautiful but the plants are also... tasty! So they can face a variety of pests, including:

  • · Aphids: small insects cluster on new growth, sucking sap from the plant and causing distortion or yellowing of leaves.
  • · Whiteflies: look like tiny moths and can be found on the undersides of leaves, sucking plant juices.
  • · Spider Mites: can form webs on the undersides of leaves and cause discoloration and stippling.
  • · Thrips: slender insects that feed on flower buds and young leaves, causing them to become distorted and discolored.
  • · Scales: small, immobile bumps on stems and leaves, sucking sap and weakening the plant.


🧯 Treatment methods:
  1. Pruning: Remove heavily infested parts of the plant and dispose of them properly to prevent the spread of pests.
  2. Natural Predators: Introduce beneficial insects like ladybugs, lacewings, or wasps, which prey on common garden pests.
  3. Horticultural Oils: Neem oil or insecticidal soap can be effective against soft-bodied pests like aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Sunshine Nobug is a perfect organic solution that contains oil and soap.
  4. Water Spray: Regularly spraying your hibiscus with a strong stream of water can help dislodge pests like aphids and whiteflies from the plant.
  5. Systemic Insecticides: These are chemicals absorbed by the plant, making it toxic to insects feeding on it. However, use them cautiously and follow the instructions to minimize harm to beneficial insects and the environment.


❗️Always monitor your hibiscus plants closely for signs of pest infestation, and take prompt action to prevent damage. Regular maintenance, such as proper watering and fertilizing, can also help keep plants healthy and more resistant to pests 🕷🐛

🧪 How to learn the Truth about fertilizers.

Spring is here and so is the time to give your plants more food for active growth!

❓ How to decide which fertilizer to chose with so many of them on the market? The basic idea is -

❗️ All fertilizers and good for plants, because it's food!

But like with every food in must be in right time, right kind, and right amount.

Basic types of fertilizers:

  • ❇️ Controlled-release fertilizer is coated and release nutrients slowly and constantly within labeled amount of time (3-6-12 months). Good for stepping-up and transplanting.

  • ❇️ Slow release granulated fertilizer breaks down quickly, especially in the heat, and should be used as a top-dress only occasionally (for example, to green up a plant quickly).

  • ❇️ Liquid fertilizers are the most efficient in a long run. They make plants strong, resistant, healthy and productive, slowly but surely building up energy in their system. This is why all professional food farms, from veggies to hemp, stick to liquid plant food.

We suggest Sunshine Boosters, they are safe to use with every watering and year around. Their formulas are natural (based on organic amino-acids) and great for edibles.

Avocado pollinating and crops

Avocado fruit

Photo above: Avocado Joey - very buttery fruit, cold hardy variety.

Q: I bought an anise leaf-scented avocado from you, and it is finally quite large and doing great. I live in California, the coldest temperatures we seem to get in some winters is around 25 to 28F, and it never lasts long. The tree might get a bit of frost nipping on the new growth, but it has done very well. It has flowered profusely for the last two years but hasn't set any fruit. What variety you might recommend to help with pollinating?

A: We are glad your avocado is doing great. Anise is one of our favorite varieties, with the wonderful smell of leaves and tasty fruit.

Cold hardiness and flower quality

It is true that cold damage may affect avocado production, especially in setting fruit. To improve the tree's cold hardiness, make sure to provide balanced plant food, especially during the season of active growth. For our avocado trees, we use Sunshine C-Cibus year-round.

If you prefer to use dry (granulated, slow-release) fertilizers, make sure they contain micronutrients, or apply Sunshine Superfood microelement complex once a month.

To improve flower quality (including the ability to set fruit), we recommend a special micronutrient supplement called Sunshine Honey. It contains Boron and Molybdenum - elements that are responsible for setting fruit and for developing fruit (meaning not dropping at the early stage of development).

Cross-pollination and crop

In general, every avocado tree is self-fertile, meaning it can produce some fruit with its own pollen and doesn't necessarily require a second tree for pollination. So even if you don't do anything, sooner or later your tree will set fruit. However, it is also true that the amount of fruit and crop reliability depends on pollination factors. One type of avocado classification is by flowering and pollination behavior - type A or B.

When both types of trees are grown in proximity to each other, their overlapping flowering patterns significantly enhance the chances of cross-pollination. This can lead to improved fruit set and higher yield, making it especially important for commercial production and, to a lesser extent, for home growers.

Therefore, it's advisable to plant different varieties of avocado in your garden - the more, the merrier! The greater the diversity of avocado trees with overlapping flowering periods, the better your crop is likely to be. If you're growing an avocado tree without other avocados nearby, it becomes helpful to have more than one tree with different flowering patterns (A and B) to increase yield in your garden.

Anise Avocado is type B. So to increase your crop, you may consider planting type A variety from the list: Bernecker, Black Prince, Catalina, Choquette, Day, Donnie, Fantastic, Florida Hass, Lila, Loretta, Lula, Mexicola, Mexicola Grande, Red Russell, Reed, Russell, Simmonds, Ulala , Waldin .

To learn more about avocado types, fruit characteristics, cold hardiness and much more, refer to our Avocado Variety Guide - a page with very convenient interactive chart allowing you to quickly sort types of avocado by requirements of your choice (just click on column header to sort data). You may also buy a Book or download a PDF.
