Watering potted tropical,hibiscus

Zone Cape Town, South Africa | Anonymous added on February 12, 2018 | Answered

Have two orange potted hibiscus. Seemed to be doing well but now notice small leaves are turning bright yellow and other leaves are going pale. In full sun and watered once a day. Are they under or over watered ? Something wrong. Thanks for your info.

Potted plants may need watering twice a day when temperatures are hot. Soil should be moist.

Yellowing leaves can indicate watering issues or pests.
