When the hibiscus blossoms fall off, should you pinch back the part that held the blossom or just leave as is?

You can pinch it off, but hibiscus are pretty much self cleaning, so the flower will fall off on its own soon enough. Your plant will be fine left as is. Pinching out the pods could actually inhibit additional blooming later on.
