: : I have three Tropical Hibiscus which bloomed last year, and bloomed this winter when I brought them in but they will not bloom now that they are back outside. They all have several large buds - many more than last year, but they just sit there, and if one opens at all it is just barely peeks open and then it dies.
: : I have fertilized with Miracle Grow Bllom Booster to no avail. I am now using Scotts Rose and Bloom 12-4-8.
: : Thanks!
: : ... Come to think of it nothing is really blooming all that well out there...
I'm in North Texas, very hot and humid here as well. But they didn't seem to mind it last year. Now I notice that the buds are turning yellow and falling off. I may give up and go buy new ones.
