saved my hibiscus from the yellow leaf death
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.
