I'm not an indoor gardener, but have a hibiscus I've nursed through many moves. This plant is clearly a survivor, and has become a pet--I admire it's will to survive everything military movers throw at it. It's about 12 years old.
The last move resulted in a fall where the trunk cracked. The top of the plant was snapped off & discarded (!) the pot with the stub dumped in the garden. When I arrived from overseas, the plant was already pushing shoots out from the old trunk. I thought it would be ok and left it in DH's care.
On a recent visit, though, I see the smaller shoots have withered and died. The remaining shot is wilting. The only thing I can figure is DH may have over-watered in my absence.
What do I do? Repot it? Or try to rescue the last shoot? I've looked on the internet but have trouble understanding woody vs green propogation and an the wrong action coild just hasten the poor thing's death.
Any help would be appreciated!
