Potted Hibiscus Sprouting Large New Leaves

jaybird added on February 18, 2015 | Answered

My potted hibiscus is sprouting very large new leaves - at least twice as large as the existing leaves. The old leaves are small and wilted whereas the new leaves are large and are not wilted. Since it is winter I have been watering when the soil is dry and have not fertilized the plant for a couple of months.
