    Tropical hibiscus if your temperatures drop below 55 degrees has to be brought inside for the winter and placed in a sunny window

      Feed and water as usual. Water when the leaves begin to droop and feed every 2-3 months depending on the feed.

    I live in Rockford IL and I brought mine in 3 weeks ago and placed it in the entryway, so far so good. (I am in zone 5).

    I live in SE Minnesota and I brought mine in when the lows were in the low 40's and they are doing fine under a daylight light we put up. Check often for watering needs while inside in the dry heat while it is in the house. It is still blooming, but a little slower while transitioning to being inside.

    I winter my hibiscus in Central Ontario Canada and brought in when temperatures were dropping to the low 40s as well. We have them in front of a window to capture as much daylight as possible. Watch for white flies as they will eat all the leaves. There are sprays to control them which may or may not work. I lost my 5 year old Hibiscus last winter to them. Hopeful the new hibiscus will make it through.

    I have a hibiscus and a lemon tree I have had for 6 years. Each year when the texp falls to down the the 40s I bring the trees in the basement. The hibiscus will lose its leaves but don’t worry. Keep it watered and when you put it back out in the spring it will get new leaves and produce beautiful flowers. My hibiscus is now over 5 foot tall! My lemon tree has 8 lemons on it now while living in the basement.
