Hi I\'m wondering how would I get started pruning my hibiscus plant it needs pruning plus needs to be repotted. And I\'m wondering how and where to prune it. I would like to make my hibiscus plant be a little smaller.
Pruning basics apply here. Any time of year, prune out dead, dying, diseased and crossing (rubbing) branches. Typically, hibiscus is pruned in the dormant season; growing a deciduous hibiscus indoors is going to throw this off. No matter; hibiscus is very hardy. Start with the 4 Ds listed above. Then prune out the oldest wood to soil level. Prune out any side branches that are growing toward the center of the plant. It should have a classic vase or V shape. Trim back the tips to the desired height, making the cut 1/4 inch above a node or set of leaves. If I'm right about what type of hibiscus you have, living indoors is not going to be good. Consider purchasing a tropical hibiscus. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/hibiscus-container-care.htm
