Hi Sumati,

Welcome to the forums. It is natural for Hibiscus leaves to turn yellow once they grow old. What is the media composition (soil:manure and combination of manures/fertilizers) you are using for the plant? If possible post a picture and be specific with regards to the help required.

Hi Srikanth,
The media is a mix of red soil and natural manure.i didn't add any fertiliser.I bought the plant from a nursery and put it in a pot.iI kept it in a sunny place in the balcony where it got direct sunlight for 8hours.After a day I noticed 2 or 3 leaves turned yellow and dropped.It didn't look right so I thought I'd ask for help.
