Just bought my first Hibicus Tree. It's tropical. I bought it from a nursery outside, but when I brought it home it was so dry and root bound the first thing I did was repot and watered good. I want to grow it on my screened porch, is this good? Will it be enough light? Thanks so much for your help.

You don't mention how much direct sun so it's a difficult question to answer:-). A hibiscus will want to get at least a half days direct sun (not indirect light) to bloom well.


RE: Newbie here... Please help

Agree with Randy. If you can give it about a half-day's light, you can get some blooms (mine get morning sun only and bloom). Otherwise it will still grow and may have a sporadic bloom (I have had mine sporadically bloom inside with "bright" conditions), but won't be a showplace in the bloom department.
