I was trying to transplant a young Hibiscus plant to a pot but overnight it's leaves drooped so that I think it's dead. Is because it's been so hot and humid that it got stressed out?

Transplant stress is common with plants moved during the hot summer months. As soon as the roots adjust to the new growing spot the plant will perk up. Just give it a week or two to establish itself and it will begin growing again for you. In the meantime, water thoroughly, then allow the top half inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Be patient with your hibiscus and it should be just fine.
