Q.Hibiscus Bending

Anonymous added on August 26, 2011 | Answered

I have a hibiscus that is in a pot. I have had it for 4 years and have repotted it twice (the first pot was too small). I fertilize it and water, etc. It’s done well, but this year I’ve noticed the new limbs are starting to curve down. It is on a porch but does get sunlight. Is there a reason they are curving, and what should I do?

Sometimes the weight of the foliage or blooms makes them heavy. You should buy plant stakes to help support them. These are available at most nurseries. Pruning the plant back can help as well.
