The Q&A Archives: Brownish leaves

Question: I purchased two hybrid hibiscus from the HOme Depot Guam, the blooms are so beautiful but I noticed that the leaves are turning brown. Is it gonna die, what should I do.
Thank you

Answer: Do the leaves feel crispy or droopy? Crispy leaves can indicate sunscald; droopy can indicate over watering or over fertilization. Try placing the plant where it gets morning sun but shade from the hot afternoon sunshine. This should make a big difference in the appearance of your plant. Good luck with your new hibiscus!
