Q.Hibiscus Dying

snayfa added on June 19, 2011 | Answered

My hibiscus is dying from the roots up. The leaves are turning yellow and dropping off. It’s in a pot with plenty of room and was in full sun, but I have moved it inside for now. The temperature has been in the 90’s to the 100’s. Please help, I don’t want to lose the plant.

It needs more water. In temps like that outside, plants in pots need to be watered at least 2X a day - 3X a day if you can. The water evaporates very fast and they need more water to compensate.
