Q.Leaves On My Hibiscus Plant Are Drying Up And Turning Brown

Zone 39564 | Bcurle added on June 16, 2022 | Answered

I have a potted hibiscus plant on my deck . It gets about 5 hours of morning sun. The flower blossoms are beautiful and plentiful. However, lately some of the leaves have begun to partially dry up and turn brown. I\\\’m pretty vigilant about watering it. Is this a sign of over watering or under watering?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. It could be either! A soil moisture meter can help you to know when is a proper time to water. This will be when the soil dries, thoroughly, down to about 2 or 3 inches.
