Hibiscus Care

The Hibiscus features oversized flowers with a tropical look. Perfect for sunny outdoor spaces, the Hibiscus is covered in bright blooms for the entire summer.

How to care for your Hibiscus

Use these instructions to care for a Hibiscus. This guide will tell you how to water a Hibiscus; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.



Place your Hibiscus in a full sun location that receives 6 or more hours of direct sunlight per day. The Hibiscus can tolerate partial sun exposure, but flowering will be reduced. The plant will not produce flowers in a fully shaded location.


Water when the 50% of the soil volume is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot. Do not use a saucer outdoors or allow the plant to sit in standing water.


Average outdoor humidity is fine for most area of the US.


Keep indoors in a bright spot until outdoor temperatures remain above 50°F. Foliage can be damaged at temperatures below 45°F. 


Feed every two weeks in the spring and summer with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer. For maximum flowering, use a bloom-boosting fertilizer that is high in phosphorus.


Your Hibiscus is considered non-toxic and pet-friendly.


Hibiscus cannot survive winter throughout most of the US. Bring indoors when the temperatures dip below 50°F. Your plant will not grow much indoors, so water sparingly and do not fertilize over the winter. The plant can be moved outdoors when temperatures warm in the spring.
