I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

Hibiscus loves moist soil and lots of sun. Just to avoid keeping it to soggy wet and it should be fine. A moderate amount of fertilizing is also helpful. You can use a quarter cup of lawn fertilizer sprinkled around the bush every four weeks or you can choose a soluble plant foods such as Miracle Grow and follow the label rate.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
