I have three hibiscus plants which I just brought in for the winter. I previously had one for several years. Last year I was told not to water it in the winter. It died. What should I do with three new ( this year) ones?

Thanks so much for the question. We have several of them that we winter inside as well each year. They are not going to look the same indoors as outside and you will need to ensure that it gets some sunlight. The leaves will usually yellow and all may fade (mainly due to the furnace in the house). If the leaves fall off but the branches are still pliable, then it probably has just gone into full dormancy. In that case you would then place it into a cool and dark location until the spring.

I am not sure who told you not to water them but that is incorrect. You will still need to water them but you need to water them less. You will only provide them with water when the soil is completely dry to the touch.

I hope this helps. If you have any followup questions, just click on reply to expert.

Have a wonderful rest of the week and all the best with your hibiscus plants.
