How long should each flower last and what do you do when it’s done? Pull it or cut the stem off?

Most hibiscus flowers bloom for only one day. But there should be an abundance of buds on the plant for continuous blooming. While you can deadhead if desired, this practice is not necessary. Your hibiscus plant will be fine left as is. The spent blooms will drop on their own.
