I brought my double orange tropical hibiscus inside in November. I put it near a window, but it doesn't get much light of course with such short days, and cloudy. I watered it when dry. But now, just about all its leaves are yellowing and starting to drop off. It's not soggy, even at the bottom of the pot, where I've been watering it from a dish.
I'll admit I'm not too worried, since I've had this happen with other plants and they just regrew their leaves. But it's in the living room, and not looking good, so I want to try and reverse this. Otherwise I'll just lug it to the basement with the other plants in dormancy.
It's about three feet high from its pot, well branched. I'm thinking maybe it's having a hard time supporting all the foliage on short rations? Last year it was only about a foot high and it didn't lose nearly as much foliage at once.
Just thinking aloud. Any suggestions?
