How to care for sea hibiscus
sea hibiscus needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

sea hibiscus love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.

Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of sea hibiscus in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your sea hibiscus after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
