Hibiscus Fertilizing

Anonymous added on August 6, 2011 | Answered

Is it okay to use liquid Miracle-Gro Houseplant food 8-7-6 for hibiscus? Should I use it diluted? I've been getting flowers. Unfortunately, they die in a day. Should I snip off the spot where the flower is?

Many hibiscus blooms often last only a day--this is normal. Use a high potassium fertilizer. You can either use a diluted liquid fertilizer one a week, a slow release fertilizer once a month or you can add a high potassium compost to the soil.
