|I bought a large potted hibiscus for my son and I suggested that he pot it in a much larger pot since he currently lives in a rental.
How should he safeguard it during the winter?
With hostas, I tip the pots sometime in late November.
Please help. Thank you.

|Hi Gerry. I'm thinking he's got a Tropical Hibiscus, H. rosa-sinensis. The main thing is to keep it from freezing. If he has a nice sunny south facing window he can keep it near that making sure there is not a lot of cold air coming through the window or getting hit directly by a heat from a register. Also don't water as often, and keep the soil on the dry side of moist. If the leaves start to brown on the edges it's probably wanting more humidity so one good misting once a day. Also don't be surprised if some of the leaves start turning yellow and fall off.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
