Overwintering plants - Hibiscus
I got 2 gorgeous hibiscus trees around May and they bloomed and bloomed throughout the season. One seemed a little sickly and would drop leaves and shrivel up for whatever reason but they both held on. I brought them in last week after repotting, watering well and spraying for insects. I put them in the basement near a window. Very little sun gets through down there but it's the best I could do. Pictures below show how they are looking. Is this ok? I mean, I expect them to look crappy throughout the winter but we're just getting started. The soil is not dry ... it's moist and the leaves are crunchy. I plan to water very infrequently - maybe every 2-3 weeks or so? Any other suggestions to better my chances of keeping them alive until next year?
