Sometimes root rot can develop if you water the pots and they dont have adequate light to dry them out. What temperature are they in now?

what i did do as i remember, they were out in the hot sun, that afternoon i watered them as i do. about 22 hours later i moved them inside my back room. it has one window and very little a/c or heat. the next day they looked funny, drying. the third day the leaves started turning yellow. one week later the plant looked dead leaves dead and falling off. i went on a hibiscus site and someone said this will happen because of the change. so i let it ride. two weeks later looked even deader if that can happen. then i took the photo and posted above.

@cuzzx
I had this happen to me last year, same situation as you. sad to say, I believe your Hibiscuses are dead. I didn't realize this until this past spring when I brought them outside and noticed that after two weeks there was zero green growth anywhere.... ='(
….you could try and snip the tips of the branches to see if any still have life. The branches will begin to dry at the tip and makes its way to the core of the organism. I've found it hard to cease the drying, once it starts its usually because all the roots are gone.
