Why are the leaves on my hibisscus turning yellow?

Leaves of Hibiscus can turn yellow from several causes. Too much or too little water, insufficient sunlight, inadequate fertilization. Review the conditions under which your Hibiscus is growing and make sure that your plant is receiving ample moisture but at the same time is not staying too wet. If your Hibiscus is planted in a container, make sure that the drainage hole has not become obstructed. If your Hibiscus is new from the nursery, make sure that it is receiving adequate sunlight. Speaking for our Hibiscus, they were grown in full sunlight, so anything less than this will cause some leaves to drop. If you've had your Hibiscus for some time, review your feeding schedule and make sure that your plant receives regular feeding with a Hibiscus fertilizer.

Thanks for your inquiry.
