Question:I picked off a few hibiscus blossoms off a bush in my yard to dry them out and make tea. On hibiscus tea recipes, it says to us the calyx of the plant. That is what is confusing me. Do I just use the calyx or do I use the whole flower, petals and all? Also, if I just need the calyx, should I go ahead and pick off the petals if I don't need them? Thanks!
Answers:According to the website listed below, it says to use the whole petal. Not sure what a calyx is.
Question:Just bought a bunch of hardy Hibiscus to plant. I started them in large plastic garden flower containers with good garden composted soil. Right now they just have a root system and one small "bud" (?) poking out from them. I faced this part up to the sun as it looked a bit green on top. How long will it take them to grow? And should I water them well while they are growing or wait until they have leaves etc? Any other advice would be appreciated.
Answers:Hibiscus are actually a dry , heat loving plant. Water too much and they will get scale, aphids, mites etc. Plants generally need water once a week for 15 to 20 minutes when they are in the ground. Use caution while watering hibiscus.
Question:I bought a Hibiscus plant last year and this happened constantly. The new buds would form but before they would open (flower) the buds would fall off the stem. It was in a clay pot and even when I would get flowers they would fall off very quickly. I ended up transferring the plant to the ground and am waiting to see what happens. So far, so good, and I have one bloom about to open.
This year I bought 2 new Hibiscus plants and the same thing is happening. The buds just fall off the end of the stem before I see a flower. When I bought the plants they had at least 1 to 2 open flowers on each plant.
They are planted in large clay pots w/ potting soil, get watered every 2-3 days, get full sun in morning and part of the afternoon and get fertilizer as required.
Are the pots too small, not enough soil? (I have put them in larger pots and than they came in when purchased), Wrong fertilizer? (It says for flowering plants like Hibiscus), Too much/not enough water? Wrong type of soil?
Answers:From Houston Chronicle, August 2004 (first link below):
Too much or too little fertilizer or water and excess temperatures can cause hibiscus buds to drop. This can be worse in some seasons than in others and among some varieties more than others. Double types may be more prone than others.
But more recently, we reported hibiscus experts Roz and Pat Merritt's advice on dealing with the gall midge, another cause of bud drop. The midge lays its eggs in buds, causing them to yellow and fall off the plant. If you cut a bud open, you may see the larvae.
Pick up all fallen buds and pick off all yellow buds, seal them in a plastic bag and dispose of the bag.
You could spray the plant with a product containing imidicloprid. Treat the ground/pot soil with a granular product that will target the stage that pupates in the ground. Spray three times at three-day intervals to get all stages. Cold weather should set the pests back. "
From Klahanie Greehouses (2nd link, more info)
"All Hibiscus rosa-sinensis need good, regular feeding and the soil must be kept MOIST (not wet) at all times. Failure to do so will cause the buds to fall off. "

Parts Of A Flowering Plant :Check us out at www.tutorvista.com Parts of a Flowering Plant Flowering plants, also called angiosperms, are the most numerous of all the divisions in the Plant Kingdom. The parts of a flowering plant are characterized by two basic systems: a root system and a shoot system. These two systems are connected by vascular tissue that runs from the root through the shoot. The root system enables flowering plants to obtain water and nutrients from the soil. The shoot system allows plants to reproduce and to obtain food through photosynthesis. Root System The roots of a flowering plant are very important. They keep the plant anchored in the ground and obtain nutrients and water from the soil. The roots also store food. Nutrients and water are absorbed through tiny root hairs that extend from the root system. All roots however, do not originate underground. Some plants have roots that originate above ground from stems or leaves. These roots provide support for the stems. Shoot System Flowering plant stems, leaves, and flowers make up the plant shoot system. Plant stems provide support for the plant and allow nutrients and water to travel throughout the plant. Within the stem and throughout the plant are tube-like tissues called xylem and phloem. These tissues carry water, food, and nutrients to all parts of the plant. The leaves are the sites of food production for the flowering plant. It is here that the plant acquires light energy and carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and ...
