Yellow Leaves

I have a house/patio Hibiscus and the leaves are turning yellow and a little wilted looking. Does it need water or am I killing it with kindness and too much water?

Hibiscus do not like over watering or too much room to grow (if planted in a container). Yellow leaves usually mean too much water, but conversely can also mean not enough. Try cutting back on the watering (only when top 3-4 inches are dry), give it a chance to recover, and try again.
