TROPICAL HIBISCUS CARE

Hibiscus is a tropical shrub that's easy to grow. It produces large, neon-hued blooms. It is available in many different varieties, and ranges in shape from a bush to a small tree. It can be grown in containers and in soil, and is a wonderful plant to add island flair to your patio, garden or deck.
Planting
Whether you plant your Hibiscus in a container or directly into the ground, be sure you're using well-drained soil. If your soil is heavy or clay-like, amend it with peat moss, sand or vermiculite. Only dig your hole to the depth of the container you originally purchased it in, and plant your Hibiscus so that the uppermost portion of its roots are showing. This will prevent disease and rot.
General Care
Hibiscus needs plenty of bright, warm sunlight. In order to encourage full growth and flowering, you should apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring. The plant should be watered deeply every few days to keep its soil evenly moist. Though its soil should never be allowed to dry out completely, be careful to avoid overwatering your Hibiscus, as this could contribute to root rot. Prune back in dormancy during late fall or early spring to encourage lush new growth and overall shapeliness.
Wintering
Unless you live in a hot, near-tropical environment, it will be necessary to winter your  Hibiscus indoors in order to keep it alive. Leaving this plant outside in colder regions will cause it to die. Bring your Hibiscus indoors in the late fall and keep it in a sunny location away from excessively cool or hot drafts.  Supplemental lighting via a shop light with high quality florescent bulbs might be the ticket…we have florescent lighting in all our greenhouses and keep them on at night all winter and on dark days. Water it sparingly, as it won't need nearly as much water as it did when it was planted outside
