Description

Shoeblackplant, also known as Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, is a plant that belongs to the mallow family. There are over 200 species of hibiscus that can be found in warm and tropical regions all over the world. Hibiscus grows on well-drained soils in sunny areas. This plant is best known for its beautiful flowers. Hibiscus is usually cultivated for ornamental purposes, but it can be also used in the human diet, as a cure for various disorders, and as a source of natural dyes. Wild types of hibiscus are an important source of food for the larvae of certain insects. Several species of Hawaiian hibiscus are endangered and extremely rare in the wild due to habitat loss and diseases. Depending on the species, hibiscus can grow in a form of an evergreen bush or small tree (that can reach up to 15 feet in height). Hibiscus has green, lanceolate leaves with toothed edges. Leaves are alternately arranged on the branches.

Sunlight – The hibiscus usually grows in tropical conditions, so that means it needs ample amount of sunlight. Give it around six hours of sunshine, and it will grow well.

Watering – What you need to keep in mind while watering your hibiscus are the weather and the flowering cycle. In the flowering stage, the hibiscus requires more water. During summers as well, it needs a fair bit of watering but not too much so as to drown the plant.

Plant Cycle – Spider mites are common hibiscus pests, and you can deal with them by showering your plant in lukewarm water.
