i visit the hawaiian islands every year. last summer on kauai i noticed that alot of the flowers looked pale in color and sickly. to me the plants just did not look right. my friends agreed. i have to wonder if it has anything to do with the "VOG"?
No, it has nothing to do with it. More likely due to lack of care. Most of the flowers you see are planted and need to be irrigated. They are not native.

Check your island and the color code.
then scroll down under Map guide for what the color code means and recommendations. Good gauge for how to respond.
