Hibiscus Plant Pests Problem and Growing Tips and some Budgie love bird health care

Image
Hibiscus plants are grown for religious purposes as it is often sad that a home growing this flowering plant attracts good luck and God's Blessings. This is due to the fact that it is loved by Ganesha, the Elephant Headed God,  and also used as offering in temples. Hundreds of species of types of different hibiscus flowers! Its difficult to grow one for years and I wonder that's why it is so auspicious!  Especially as winter sets in the plants are always attacked by white flies, aphids or pest, I don't know why but due to low sunlight and high water content, is one of the reason, that many hibiscus plants grown on window sills in pots  do not make over the long chilly winters.

Over watering the plants made the soil look soggy and also attract mosquitoes. The plate under neath the pots was taken care off in whenever the water seeped through from the bottom of the pot, because stagnant water breeds diseases. So I selected a ceramic container that could retain water for longer time.
It all depends upon the type of plant you have indoors. Mushy fleshy stem plants are what I love as they usually are less attention seeking and take care of their own even when we skip water for a few days. Then …

Love bird eye swollen since past few days and though the garden is so vibrant with awesum gulmohar blooms, Lilly fragrances, Amaryllis large blooms, and Allamanda majenta big flowers,  and mogra heavenly white flowers the budgie who is a simply beautiful disciplined one, I have named her "Golden Monk" is sick...
No love birds don't show any signs of disease and looks good, eats with others but there is a swelling near her right eye and once we removed some pus but the boil seems to be like a tumour or thickened and don't know, just praying she recovers fast.

I so take care of keeping them clean, bathing them and they love the morning and evening trips outside under the blue sky with open breeze. praying f…
