Jack’s Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick release fertilizer that is mixed with water to quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time.

Regular potting mix works well for plants potted in containers, some sand can be added to the potting mix to prevent the tree from staying too wet. Try to avoid an area with clay soil if planting outdoors to encourage better drainage.
How much light is recommended for a Hibiscus rosa-sinensis?
These tropical plants love to bask in the sun, so it is best to give them at least 6 house of direct sun every plant. They can tolerate some shade but remember that less sun will ultimately mean less blooms.
How often should I water a Tropical Hibiscus House Plant?
The Tropical Hibiscus does not like to dry out to give it water as soon as the top of the soil is dry to the touch. This can mean that you are watering your plant twice a week, and even once a day if it is placed outside in the summer heat.
