Answer: I think you've done everything right so far. If you didn't prune it back it would remain leggy (bare stems at the bottom; foliage only on the tips of the branches). By pruning it back you encouraged healthy new growth which makes your plant look full. Hibiscus blooms best in the heat of summer. They also bloom in a cycle. Your plant has recovered from the pruning as evidenced by the lush, green growth. As soon as it has enough heat and sunlight it will develop flower buds. I expect it will take another 2-3 weeks. Then you can really enjoy your plant!
