Hibiscus Plants Care

Hibiscus is a simple way to bring a tropical flair to your landscape. You will be rewarded with many years of beautiful flowers if you know how to care for hibiscus plants.

Grow

Many individuals choose to cultivate their hibiscus plants in a pot. This enables them to relocate the hibiscus plant to more suitable areas depending on the time of year. Provide at least six hours of sunlight to the plants, especially if you want to view those gorgeous blossoms. Although warm, humid weather is good for tropical hibiscus, you may like to offer some afternoon shade if it gets too hot. Again, Pots make this simple.

When grown in a container, hibiscus plants require a snug fit. This implies they should be slightly root bound in the pot, and if you wish to repot them, allow the hibiscus just a little extra area. Always ensure that your hibiscus plant is thriving in a well-drained environment.

Fertilizing

Improve soil fertility while the plant is actively developing by scraping some compost into two soil without disturbing the plant’s roots. Then, every week, feed the plant a balanced, water-soluble, such as fertilizer For Growing, diluted at a rate of 1 teaspoon/litre of water.

Temperatures

When caring for a hibiscus, keep in mind that it blooms best in temperatures ranging from 60 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (16 to 32 degrees Celsius) and cannot withstand temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 C.). Your hibiscus plant may be left outside during the summer, but once the temperatures drop below freezing, it’s time to bring it inside.

Watering

Hibiscus need a lot of water throughout their blooming stage. In hot weather, your hibiscus will require daily watering. However, when the temperature cools, your hibiscus will need considerably less water, and too much water will kill it. Water your hibiscus only when the soil is dry to the touch in the winter.
