How to Care for Hibiscus Midnight Marvel
Before you purchase your Hibiscus Midnight Marvel, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant remains happy and healthy for years to come!
How Much Sunlight does my Hibiscus Midnight Marvel Plant Need?
Hibiscus Midnight Marvel grows in a wide variety of sunlight exposure. Your plants can handle anywhere from full sunlight to partial shade and anywhere in between. The darkest leaves are produced in Full Sun.
When Should I Prune My Hibiscus Midnight Marvel Plants?
The best time to cut back your Midnight Marvel Rose Mallow plants is in the spring. Doing so at this time will allow new growth to appear once this perennial's growing season begins. You will need a strong pair of loopers or a saw to prune this plant, so be sure you have something stronger than a typical pair of sheers. If you are simply cutting off dead or dying flowers, foliage, or stems, feel free to use a clean and sharp pair of sheers.
How Do I water my Hibiscus Midnight Marvel?
Hibiscus Midnight Marvel plants prefer to have consistently moist soil conditions, so it is vital to water them regularly. When growing Rose Mallow in containers be sure to water at least every other day during the summer to ensure your plant has the proper amount of moisture for flowering.
What Kind of Soil Does Hibiscus Midnight Marvel Require?
Hibiscus Midnight Marvel does best in well-draining but moist soil conditions. There is a tricky balance between keeping your plant's soil moist and wet, which could cause root rot disease. The best way to avoid root rot disease is to ensure your plant's soil is well-draining. If the plant receives water at an average rate but consistently and well-draining soil conditions, you will not have to worry about its roots rotting. However, do not water your perennial during the winter. The winter is their growth dormancy period, and moisture at this time could drown your plant's roots and cause damage.
