Hibiscus Plants Have Spidery Vine Growing On Base

Question From: FLORIDA
Q: My Hibiscus has a grayish-green-spidery attachment to the base of them. This parasitical-type plant is growing from the trunk/roots and climbing up the limbs. What is this and can it be treated? Or do I have to dig them up, treat the soil, and put something new in. One of the Hibiscus hedges is planted beside a Live Oak tree.


Sight unseen it's hard to say. Take a sample of the vine with leaves attached to your local independent garden center for an Id and a recommendation as to how to get rid of it. Please let us know what you find out. Best and Happy Yardening, Nancy
