Growing Hibiscus plantation in Containers
Many of us who are growing hibiscus plant varieties choose to do so in a container. This system allows them to move the hibiscus plant to ideal locations, depending on the time of year. Provide the hibiscus plants with at least six hours of sunlight, especially if you want to see those lovely blooms. Although high warm, humid conditions are ideal for tropical hibiscus, you may want to provide a little afternoon shade when it’s overly hot. Containers make this easy to maintain. Hibiscus plants fit when growing in a container. This means that they should be root bound in the pot and when you do decide to repot, give the hibiscus only a little bit more room. Make sure that your growing hibiscus plant has excellent drainage.
