Well um.. what's eating my hibiscus?!?! :)

I haven't seen anything on it so I don't know what could be chewing on it. Any ideas? Thanks :)

I don't think the picture showed up so try this instead.

Looks like there is some leaf stress disorder (the leaves appeared to be puckered and slightly distorted due to some environmental extreme that happened when the buds were emerging) and possible insect chewing. It's still sortof early and hard to tell until you get some more leaves on there. Sometimes leaves that emerge distorted will also get some holes and tears in them.

It wouldn't hurt to feed the poor little thing :-).

I have fed it!!! :) It took a nap over the winter silly! I cut it all the way down to the soil and it's just coming back up. :D Actually it's been a few weeks since I've taken the picture and it's grown more leaves and the holes went away. Thank you! :)
