Tropical Hibiscus Care & Facts

Tropical Hibiscus Care & Facts

  • Tropical Hibiscus are available in bush or tree form, in single or double flowers, and in colours of red, yellow, peach, pink, and white.
  • The large exotic flower of the Tropical Hibiscus lasts just one day but they are prolific bloomers if placed in an area where there is plenty of sun.
  • Many people like to put their Hibiscus outside on the patio for the summer months and bring it back in for the winter.
  • In spring acclimatize your plant slowly to direct sunlight or the foliage will burn.
  • Be sure to treat the foliage and soil with insecticide before bringing back inside in September.
  • Fertilize every 2 weeks with Plant Prod Flower Food 15-30-15 from spring through fall and, if it’s in a very sunny window for winter and wants to keep flowering, fertilize once a month.
  • Hibiscus grows rapidly and will probably need to be transplanted every 2 years. Transplant into a container 5 cm (2″) bigger, loosen the root structure gently with your fingers, and add Fafard Enriched Potting Mix.
  • Cineraria, Florist Chrysanthemums, Persian Violet, Gloxinias, and Rieger Begonias are really intended as a temporary splash of colour and are maintained so long as they’re blooming.
  • Easter Lilies and Hydrangeas can be moved outside in May with a possibility of blooming the following year.
  • Gerbera Daisies are annuals that when moved outside into full sun will flower all summer with weekly applications of Plant Prod Flower Food, 15-30-15.
