Q.Hibiscus with yellow leaves

Zone South Central NJ | Yellow added on July 15, 2012 | Answered

Thank you for your help, in advance. We have a hibiscus, in a pot kept inside, in a semi-greenhouse. It has about 5% of yellow leaves, the large leaves. I have given it some “Miraclegrow”, diluted, does not seem to help. It is about 3′ tall in the original pot of about 4 years ago. No blooms. . . any ideas? Thanks again!
