I brought our small hibiscus indoors about two weeks ago since it’s starting to get cold here. Actually tonights the first night that I’ve noticed it reach below zero! Brrr!
My hibiscus is happily upstairs in a sunny bedroom with all the other tropical plants and vines.
Each winter I cross my fingers that all these plants survive. Just being indoors doesn’t mean they’ll make it. They have to get used to being indoors in a drier environment again and then there’s pests like spider mites and white fly to contend with.
Well, whether my hibiscus survives or not it sure does produce beautiful flowers doesn’t it?
