white leaves on tropical hibiscus

mgm52(5 ohio)June 4, 2005

I moved my tropical hibiscus outside. suddenly the leaves look like someone bleached them. I've had this plant for 3 yrs. and this has never happened in the past. What is the problem and how can I fix it?

If you moved it from a dark house to outdoors into sun without a week or so of shade first, youÂve fried the leaves.

If so, move it to a morning sun, shady most of the day location and let it acclimate before it gets full sun.
