Sad Hibiscus: Droopy leaves
my mom has a hibiscus plant. it has sturdy woody stems but all the leaves looked wilted some even looking dried up. curiously the leaves are all a robust healthy dark green color; none of which has turned yellow at all. they all looked like they lost their vigor.
i was told it could possibly be wilt disease. so i used my ph/moisture monitor and found the soil on the outer periphery to be dry but the central soil where the plant is situated is wet (not soggy or dripping wet but noticeably wet.)
my concerns are:
1. ive read an easy fix using bleach water (1:2 cups water). should i pour it onto the soil while the plant is in there? wont the solution burn and kill the plant and roots as well?
2. how about the use of a cinnamon infused chamomile solution? can i also use h202 as well?
3. ive never been good at transplanting and am very wary trying with my mom's plant. her hibiscus has a fairly sturdy looking well-defined root ball. should i try to loosen it in the hopes of helping air go in, and dry the air?
