hibiscus #1

Hibiscus, from a cutting made in Eilat in 1978 (!!), pot by Gabriele Wirth. Four weeeks ago the tree was taken form the living room into the garden. It was defoliated and repotted. Now it starts to look decent.

Hi Walter
lovely plants. I have a beautiful
hibiscus, bearing yellow and red flowers on same plant but whenever i bring it in my living room, it really gets annoyed and sheds its flowers very soon.Also takes time to bloom again.How can i keep it indoor for a longer time?

Anita,
you have to either keep it indoor ALL the time or outdoor ALL the time. Whenever you change it will shed foliage and be set back for two months.

does it apply to all the plants, including bonsai?

Every bonsai enthusiast should have a tree like this. If not for other reasons, at least for keeping their wives happy.
