saved my hibiscus from the yellow leaf death

gigim(8A SC)July 24, 2013

So pleased that my hibiscus has come back from losing almost all of its leaves which turned yellow and fell off. I saw very slight evidence of spider mites so I repotted into a larger pot and treated it with a spray of horticultural oil every day for about a week. Yellowing has stopped and new leaves are growing all along the branches.

Thank you to Garden web for the advice. Hated to lose my little bush that I had already rescued from deaths door after purchasing if from the big box for $3 off of the "oops we forgot to water these so we marked them way down" area.
