Water the hibiscus in winter only when the soil is dry; don't overwater.

When you water, water from the top and never, never let the plant sit in standing water. While it doesn't treat the soil, try yellow sticky traps to rid yourself of flying gnats. Sticky pad traps can be found at hardware stores.
