I have a potted Hibiscus on my patio that has developed what appears to be a white fungus. How can I get rid of it?

It sounds as though your hibiscus needs a little more sunshine and better air circulation all around. Powdery mildew is a fungus and it is hard to control once it has established itself on a plant. You can try a neem oil application which will stop the spread but it won't cure the affected plant parts. Another solution is to prune off the affected plant parts and then use a preventative fungicde (or neem oil) to protect the plant from further infection. Good luck with your hibiscus!
