How to Care for Hollywood Chatty Cathy Yellow Hibiscus
Before you buy Hollywood Chatty Cathy Hibiscus, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant happy and healthy!
How Should I Water Chatty Cathy Hibiscus?
Chatty Cathy Hollywood Hibiscus plants must be watered on a regular basis to avoid any risk of their soil drying out. During their first growing season, water deeply and on a strict schedule. They love to have moist soil and we recommend watering your hibiscus once a week to ensure they establish an extensive root system. In extremely hot climates, their soil dries out faster. The best way to fix this issue is to simply water more frequently than normally recommended.
What Kind of Soil Does Hollywood Hibiscus Prefer?
Hollywood Hibiscus is not particular to a type of soil, however soil that leans slightly more acidic and is well-drained responds best. Tropical 'Chatty Cathy' Hollywood Hibiscus plants enjoy moist soil, however they cannot be left sitting in standing water. That is why we recommend purchasing a well-draining soil to avoid this issue. These plants also thrive in inner city environments and around urban pollution.
How Much Sunlight Should My Hollywood Chatty Cathy Plant Get?
Hollywood Hibiscus require full sun exposure for them to blossom the most flowers. However, as a house plant they will continue to grow and flower under partial sun. Placing them in a south facing window that receives 6 to 8 hours of sun each day is plenty good for your plant. During the winter months, often your hibiscus will stop bud formation due to lack of light intensity. With not enough energy to continue to develop, you may even see some shedding.
What Type of Fertilizer Should I Use with My Tropical Hollywood Hibiscus?
A regular application of fertilizer is required during growing season for these relatively fast growing plants. A low phosphorous, well-balanced soil will be the perfect option from spring to fall. Try a slow-release pearlized fertilizer once in the early spring in the beginning of their growth period. This will last your plant to reach its best growing potential and not lead to over fertilizing while in the winter months when they go dormant.
