Q.Hibiscus Plant With White Leaves

Anonymous added on April 23, 2013 | Answered

I have put my two hibiscus plants back outside after having them in the garage over the winter. They stayed in pretty good shape this winter and had begun to put out new leaves and blooms even before I placed them back out by the pool. They are in large containers. I purchased some Bayer Advanced all-in-one fertilizer that said it was for roses, hibiscus, azaleas, and other shrubs. I mixed it up and put an application on each pot last night, and today the leaves have begun to turn white and look very transparent. I have since found a section on the fertilizer bottle that I missed last night that said do not use on plants in containers. Have I killed the plants or is there something I can do to prevent that?

If you put garage overwintered plants into direct sun, chances are they are sunburned. Fertilizer used according to package directions should not hurt the plants.
