Mulching 2-3 inches deep is recommended for hibiscus. Mulching will cut back on watering needs, prevent weeds, and protect your plant in extreme temperatures.
Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first few months after planting. If you encounter flower drop or only a small crop of flowers it is more likely to be a lack of water than it is a lack of fertilizer.
Choose a balanced slow-release fertilizer, like what we carry. Fertilize once in spring after the last chance of frost and again in midsummer for best results. If you have a nutrient rich soil, skip the midsummer dose of fertilizer. Avoid over fertilizing your Hibiscus. This can cause blooms to never open and even encourage aphids, one of the few pests of Hibiscus.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat aphids and whitefly naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Fungal infection can be prevented by making sure the planting site has good drainage and by avoiding overhead watering. Fungal infections can be treated with a fungicide. Generally, treating fungal issues after infection isn't effective so if you have problems in a prior year, treat preventatively in early spring.
