What’s wrong with my Hibiscus?

I got this hibiscus a few days ago and the leaves are turning yellow and the buds are falling off. There are also little holes in some of the leaves. All the florist told me was to keep the soil moist and give it 6 hours of sunlight which is what I’ve been trying to do. Im in CA so it’s been constant high 70’s everyday. All google says is dont overwater and dont underwater, don’t give too much sun but don’t not give enough. How much water am I supposed to be giving it? Do I have a pest problem? I see a fly going to the leaves every now and then, and there’s a presence of this brown powder-like substance on some of the leaves. Any advice on how to keep this plant alive and blooming again is much appreciated!
