My hibiscus plants were infested with mealy bugs two months ago and I was so worried that these bugs might destroy my plants. I have a few different types of hibiscus in my little space I called " my garden ". I asked around and a Sifu from Malaysia Gardeners Group in facebook came to the rescue. He asked me to ferment some garlic and spray on them.  It did not straight away free my plants from the mealy bugs.  After gathering more information...I put together their tips and came up with this mixture . Mix a litre of water with 1tsp of dish washing liquid, 1tsp of fermented garlic and 1/8 tsp of neen oil . Sift the mixture and pour into a spray bottle.  Spray on the part infected by mealy bugs and wash them away.  I did this every morning for the past one month and VIOLA, all the mealy bugs disappeared and now my hibiscus are blooming everywhere and this taught me what thing .In life we have to ask around and PATIENCE  yield SUCCESS! 

A random post to boost the day :)
