    Sorry, folks
    Don't know if my plant should be inside or out but since I'm in an apartment I'm hoping for the former. The blooms are beautiful and plentiful but the glossy, dark green leaves are drooping so badly they almost curve down to touch the wood branch.
    No idea what to do!!
    Apologies to those of you who are experts.
    Hoping someone can help.

    Maybe some helpful info if you use "search" box for "hibiscus" near top of this page, in black border.

    I've moved this to the Hibiscus forum. Have a read through the posts in this forum - I thought this issue was touched on in the past, but perhaps not.

    Are the leaves dropping or colouring, or simply wilting?

    i did a quick response earlier but reading better dark glossy green leaves would be a tropical hibiscus. drooping could be from over watering or maybe an insect problem. i did see a la luna tropical hibiscus with large orange blooms with a bit of red in them i did a google search. but pretty sure with dark glossy leaves it is a tropical or (hibiscus rosa sinensis) if the soil is wet they donot like wet feet at all moist soil yes but wet is bad for them. and check under the leaves for any insects.
