Tropical hibiscus needs bright light (some sunshine is beneficial), warm conditions and a thorough watering when the top of the soil begins to dry out. They respond well to pruning so I'd suggest pruning the collection back by one-third in mid-summer; pruning will encourage healthy new growth and promote flowering. Enjoy your fabulous hibiscus!
