Over Fertilized Hibiscus

1ynn added on August 8, 2012 | Answered

Help! Accidentally fertilized my potted hibiscus plants twice within a 3 week period with Scotts all purpose flower & veg. continuous release plant food (10-10-10). Leaves are limp & turning yellow. Still have blooms but not sure if new buds will remain or drop off. Should I gently remove plants from container & repot with new soil?

You can try flushing the soil with water to dilute it and lessen the damage. But other than this, there's little you can do. This article should also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/signs-of-over-fertilization-in-houseplants.htm
