|As long as your hibiscus is blooming, it is relatively healthy. It's normal for the oldest (innermost and lowest) leaves to drop but new leaves should replace them within a few days. If the yellowing leaves include some of the newer leaves, you may want to carefully inspect the leaves and the stems of your plant. It may be that there is an insect infestation and that's what is causing the leaf drop. Hope this information helps you determine what's going on with your plant.
