 When you receive your new Hibiscus - Open your box carefully and water if dry. Please take your time when opening. Most foliage damage occurs when the box is ripped open in the excitement of receiving new plants. Many plants, especially succulents, are very fragile and leaves will snap off easily if not handled cautiously. Our growers are shipping live plants intended for generations of enjoyment. If your plant become damaged, with broken or yellow leaves, do not worry this situation is only temporary, with proper care your new plant will bounce right back in a week or two.
 Planting Information - Remove the plant carefully from its pot by laying it on its side and lightly tapping the sides of the container. Gently slide the plant out of the pot. In some cases where the roots have grown through the holes of the container you may need to cut the container off of the plant.
 Use a sharp knife or garden shears to make slits down the sides of the root ball. This will encourage accelerated root growth into the new soil.
 Be sure not to cut too deeply into the main root system. The object is to only lightly score or cut through the secondary or feeder roots on the outside of the root ball.
 All plants in deep tree cones can very quickly and painlessly be planted by using an electric drill with a bulb planting auger. You can find this time saving attachment online at HomeDepot, Lowes or Amazon.com.
             
They generally sell for around $20.
 Your Hibiscus Mutabilis should be planted a little below the soil line. Often we have found mixing a small amount of slow time release fertilizer into the lower level of the soil before planting speeds up the rate of growth.
 When planting in ground allow enough space for growth and for plants to develop properly usually on 5-8 foot centers. If planted too tightly there will not be enough room for root expansion and plants will not reach their full height and bloom potential.
 Height - Hibiscus Mutabilis Confederate Roses +- 8 feet, Hibiscus Mutabilis Rubrum +- 6 feet, Hibiscus Mutabilis Misty Pink +- 13 feet, However your new Hibiscus may over or under perform, depending on the light, soil and humidity it is exposed to.
 Recommended Container Size - Most gardeners don't realize that Hibiscus Mutabilis do very well in containers. Container size may vary depending on the growth rate of the plant. Allow enough room for growth generally a 12" to a 42" diameter, 18" deep container will do well.
 Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your plant will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow. At that point it is time for a larger pot.
 Water - Hibiscus Mutabilis prefer rich slightly moist soil. Remember the #1 cause of death to plants is over watering. Many decorative containers do not have drain holes at the bottom, so when a plant is regularly watered the roots in the bottom of the pot are subjected to an aquatic environment, with no hope for oxygen and the decay begins.
Plants are usually 3-4 feet tall when shipped.
 Light 75-100% Sun - Full sun is best. Try not to plant your Hibiscus Mutabilis in a full shade area.
 Fertilize -  Fertilizer can be detrimental to Hibiscus Mutabilis and too much can kill the plant so fertilize sparingly with a slow time release10-10-10 or 12-12-12. Hibiscus Mutabilis are light feeders, however unfertilized they will tend to grow very slowly. For a rich, full look, feed them bimonthly but don't over fertilize. If a little is good, a lot is NOT always better.
