Hibiscus Wilt

Asked August 5, 2015, 12:38 PM EDT

I have a concern about my hibiscus red plant. The plant seems just fine, but every time it's in direct sunlight the leaves turn soft and droop. I do water the plant if the soil seems dry. Also there are not any pest problems except snails eating the leaves, but there is little damage except for holes on the leaves.

Best way to determine whether you are dealing with an environmental, insect or disease problem or something else is to take photos and send them to your local 'Ask an Expert' Duval County Extension Service:
