Q.Is My Hibiscus in Shock?
What can I do for it now? I moved from NJ to Wisconsin and I brought my hibiscus plant with me. I put it outside in full sun when it got warmer around may 15th. . . . but didn’t realize how chilly it could still get at night. The leaves wilted and turned white and I brought it back inside and cut off all of the white and yellowed leaves (all but a few). Has my hibiscus gone into shock? Will it be ok? Is there anything special I can do for my plant?
