    Oh bummer about your hibiscus! It sounds like it might be dealing with some stress or nutrient issues if the leaves are just popping out at the tips. This usually means it’s not getting enough of what it needs. You might want to check if it’s getting too much sun or not enough water, which can stress it out. Also, give it a good feed with some balanced fertilizer that’s got all the goodies—nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. If the soil’s not draining well, consider mixing in some perlite or peat moss to help it out. Giving it some TLC should help get it back to full leafy glory!

    Hello!
    the plant needs to be pruned, try trimming older branches to 1/3 of their length.
    apply fertilizer and check for parasites and diseases, maybe you need an insecticide

    It sounds like your plant could benefit from some care. Pruning older branches to one-third of their length, applying fertilizer, and checking for parasites and diseases are excellent steps to promote its health. Consider using insecticide if needed to address any pest issues.
