My Hibiscus Plant

This is an indoor Hibiscus Plant. It just started blooming about 1 week ago. It has on it at least 12 buds. The important tip with this plant is; When this plant is beginning to bud and bloom, It drinks up water very fast. It will only keep budding if it is fed each day, about 1 cup of water.


Also, each day that it blooms, The bloom only last 1 full day. The next morning, Clip off at the end of the stem of the curled up bloom. Each day, it should increase the amount of blooms.

I noticed today, It has blossomed 3 new flowers. And this should continue for the spring and summer. When the warm weather is here to stay, This indoor plant can go outdoors. It loves the sunshine. But, Keep an eye on watering it. It is a lot of fun watching the growth in a plant like this.

Hi Jackie,

Truly lovely...what is the source for such a plant? Is it very expensive and does it come in different colors?

Hello, I bought cold hardy hibiscus from a mail order. It is supose to survive below 0 temps. Time will tell? I planted it out back about a week ago. Unknown as to what color it will bloom as of yet.

Every winter our Hibiscus plants get hit hard. It takes this long for them to revive, even here in Florida. I am always amazed at how precise mother nature is with flowers.

The type of hibiscus you have is one that cannot take frost or freezes well. It will die back to ground in winter and will come back if mulched good where it goes below freezing to 20 degrees but won't bloom till August and that depends on full sun, fertilizer and lots of water. If you will keep it in a pot in the winter where it is protected from freezing it will start to bloom in April or if in house in sunny window will bloom summer and winter. happy growing and remember it likes regular feedings I use 20.20.20 same as peter's professional at the rate of l.4 tsp to gal of water and do so at every feeding especially in a pot.
