Bought two beautiful hibiscus that were blooming wonderfully. Something has eaten the stems about half way up the plant. Looks like it's been pruned. What gives? BTW, they're on the front porch with other plants and the other plants have no damage at all.

J.T, I'm going to go out on a limb here and take a wild guess. Since Hibisicus has few pests and none of which would cause the damage you are referring to, I'm going to point my finger at a highly unlikely culprit. The rabbit. Rabbits love hibiscus and if the stem is cleanly cut off like a knife did it and the cut is about 6 inches off the ground - odds are its a rabbit. If you have a screened porch then forget what I wrote. As I said, it is a wild freak thing but I don't know any other pest that would do this type damage to a hibiscus.
