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 Rose Mallow after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
She needs constant moisture, so I water her every other day. Also, needs a lot of direct sunlight. The blooms are FANTASTIC and fragrant, though they typically last only a couple days. But I love that you can take the fallen blooms and dry them to make tea!
As long as you care for hibiscus, she won’t let you down!
