|If you only left the drip system on for 24 hours there's a good chance your hibiscus will recover from the flood. Plants are pretty forgiving in that respect. Just turn the system off (or plug the emitter(s) that provide water the hibiscus) and give the soil a chance to dry out. A day or two should be sufficient in this heat! Then hook up the system again and water as usual. Your hibiscus should recover and you should see some new growth in a week or two.
