Q.sick hibiscus

Zone 9 | lonni added on March 25, 2012 | Answered

Hi. . . I have a hibiscus bush in a pot on our patio. The plant stopped blooming, and every leaf on the plant is either curly, lime green or yellow, or has fallen off. It also has stopped growing. Any suggestions?

Have you been fertilizing it? The symptoms you describe are typical of not enough nutrients. I would recommend giving it a balanced water soluble fertilizer.
