Hibiscus

Zone 04073 | Robin Renaud added on April 1, 2016 | Answered

My hibiscus, which is a few inches short of the ceiling, looks dead. Now I don't know if I over watered it or not. All I have is dead looking leaves. Is there anything I can do to save it?

Is your soil soggy? If the plants roots have began to die from root rot, it may be to late to save the plant.

The soil should dry slightly between waterings.

Your Hibiscus also needs a good bright location indoors. Humidity is also important for the plants health.

Check the soil and make corrections. Increase the lighting and wait and see.
