Welcome to NGA, Hibiscus. You can but I would try any similar npk fert that is described as a slow release fertilizer instead... so you do not have to reapply often. In a pinch, I have used organic compost and composted manure too.

You will have to reapply the Miracle Gro every couple weeks. If your Hibiscus is in a pot, use at half strength.
