Lack of Water in Hot Month

Anonymous added on September 27, 2011 | Answered

My hibiscus plants did not get watered while I was on vacation, for 6 days. They looked like they were dead. I started watering daily, the stalks and some leaves are coming back green. Will they recover completely?

Hard to say for sure but it sounds fairly positive that your hibiscus is putting out new growth. You may want to trim any old or unhealthy branches and keep a check on the soil moisture so the plant doesn't get too dry (or too wet, which is just as bad).
