How to trim tropical hibiscus? Do all or part?
I have brought all my tropical hibiscus indoors now. I want to prevent them getting too leggy like they did last winter. Some are actually mostly bare stem with just a tuft of leaves on the end.
If I cut them back when they are done blooming:
by how much?
Do I cut back even if that means they have no leaves at all? I am afraid that will kill the plant if it has no leaves left to photosynthesize. Or will it resprout new leaves right away?
Or prune half the plant at a time, so it has some leaves until the trimmed side has resprouted?
