I am going to overwinter my mom's hibiscus indoors, right in my kitchen. The info said if it goes dormant let it, but do I still water it and how will I know if it is going active and when to start watering.

For the plant to go dormant, keep the area dark and cool (not cold) and water the plant about once a month or when the soil is bone dry to the touch. In the spring, you will see new leaves emerge. Once the leaves start to grow again, increase watering, and once the temps outside are past frost stage, you can move it back outside and resume normal care.
