Q.Hibiscus leaves turning yellow

Anonymous added on June 22, 2015 | Answered

I received a Hibiscus plant in mid May. I repotted it since the pot was too small because it was top heavy and kept falling over. I know I have to take it inside when the temperatures are colder and keep it inside for the winter. I have it outside at the front of the our house facing the east. It gets the morning sun and there are a lot of buds on it and they are gradually opening, usually at least 2 new ones a day, but every day there are numerous leaves turning yellow. I have only just this week added a bit of Miracle grow and I try to keep it moist at all times. Any ideas why the leaves are turning yellow?
