A month or so back I bought a hibiscus plant for my sulcata, Hades, and it was doing well for a while. He loves both the leaves and flowers, I think its one of his favorite foods I've given him. But, recently the buds or blooms that havent even opened yet have been falling off. I looked at one that just fell off this morning, and saw a little white bug in it. So naturally, I searched all over google and anywhere I could to get information. They're called whiteflies, but I haven't gotten any straight answers for how to safely and naturally remove them, without harming Hades when he eats it. Does anyone have any idea on how to do this? I just want my little buddy to be able to still snack on his flowers. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

Try spraying them off with the stream setting on your garden hose. You have to hold the them stem with your off hand and it usually knocks them off.
