How to Care for Hibiscus

Anonymous added on March 22, 2011 | Answered

I have been planting hibiscus plants in pots and they are more than five years old.  I want to have a perfect bloom in my hibiscus pots.  I place them where they can have more than six hours of sunshine.  I actually want to know which fertilizer to use and how frequent to use it.

To encourage blooming on a hibiscus, you want to use a high phosphorus fertilizer. The phosphorus encourages more blooms and larger blooms. It is best to follow the directions on the package for frequency as different fertilizers come in different strengths.
