Hibiscuses are a lot like humans. They like the same types of conditions we like… a warm place in the tropics where the temperature ranges from sixty to eighty degrees. This plant will freeze so if it gets cold where you live bring the plant indoor for the winter. The Hibiscus also requires a lot of nutrients in order to bloom, use a high potassium fertilizer once a month. One more thing we have in common is the need for a lot of water, so water them heavily in well drained soil.
