Answer: Tropical hibiscus can be cut down quite severely without harm. Just remember that wherever you cut a stem, one or two new stems will emerge. You can cut about one-third of the growth down without stressing the plants. You can prune it back again when you take it outdoors this summer, and again when you bring it back indoors next fall. Pruning will help keep your hibiscus nice and bushy and full of blooms. Enjoy!
