How Do I Get My Hibiscus Bush to Get Its Fuller Bushier Leaves Back?

llacaskey added on March 7, 2011 | Answered

I have my hibiscus in a large ceramic pot with a good size hole for drainage and also about 2 inches of rocks. It's about 4 yrs old and the leaves are really scrawny and it's not very bushy at all, even in the summer. How can I get my hibiscus to get its bigger, bushier leaves?

Pruning should help and spring is the ideal time for it. This article will explain how to prune your hibiscus: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/hibiscus/tips-for-pruning-hibiscus-plants-when-to-prune-hibiscus.htm

Also, be sure that it's receiving adequate light, as too little light will result in a leggy, spindly looking plant rather than a nice full one.
