Blooming Potential of the Hibiscus by Laurie McWilliams

Under typical growing conditions, it is difficult to keep an exotic hibiscus in full bloom because so much of the plant’s energy goes into the unique bloom production.

The hibiscus pictured below has had between six and eight flowers in bloom all summer and is loaded with more potential blooms!  Even the cool wet weather we’ve experienced during this growing season, which would normally be a curse to the heat-loving hibiscus, has not slowed it down.  BioFlora Dry Crumbles® have made all the difference in this case, as this hibiscus was planted in three-year old potting soil that was very root bound.  The impact was made by the good bacteria that was added to the potting soil by BioFlora Dry Crumbles.  This addition offered the hibiscus the nutrients it needed to thrive, despite challenging weather conditions.

Are you struggling with any of your house plants or the material in your landscape beds or containers? Cool wet weather can create a whole different scenario of successes and failures.  A liberal coating of Dry Crumbles will bring your soil back to life by introducing a diverse load of microorganisms that are naturally-occurring, but may have been unknowingly killed off through many years of the use of synthetics.  As the soil is nourished, your plants will take up the nutrients they need directly from the soil.  You will start to see improvements in the health of your plants in two to three weeks.  As the health of the plant improves, the root system strengthens and it becomes more resistant to disease and insect damage in the future.

There are some instances when the soil is so barren or clay-compacted, that a combination of Dry Crumbles and a liquid solution of humic and fulvic acids may be needed to bring your soil back to optimum levels.  Talk to us about your unique growing conditions and we can recommend a tested protocol.
