I just love hibiscus flowers. They are so large and colorful. I love the vibrant peachy orange of this one.
For years we grew a tall hibiscus tree indoors in our apartment, but when we moved to the house it died on us. Since then I think I’ve only managed to keep smaller tropical hibiscus plants alive for about two years at the most. Naturally I keep the hibiscus outdoors in the summer and then bring it in towards the end of September when it begins to get cooler during the day and night.
I think this year I’m going to get another humidifier for our house, but the new humidifier will just be in our spare bedroom where we keep our tropical plants during the winter months. The extra moisture in the air should help. I hope!
If you have success keeping hibiscus and other tropical indoor during the cold winter months I’d love to hear how you do it. Maybe one of your tips will work for me.
BTW sorry that my Green Thumb Sunday post is so late. I’ve had a whirlwind of a weekend. See the next post!
