Gorgeous Hibiscus Donna! Are they hard to grow or do they get buggy? I've never had one before.......

I've never started a hibiscus cutting before, but if you want I can start a cutting for you. Let me know.

Hibiscus has never been buggy for me. I toss mine in the shower weekly. Feed with liquid Shultz. My single peach blooms prolific.

I've never had luck starting cuttings. I'm going to try again, with some #3 hormone, ziplock bags, and a prayer.

I do find Hibiscus to be a little needy. Very thirsty plant!

I lost my hibiscus this winter. I'm so bummed about it since I had gotten it from Florida when I had gone to a plant trade.

Boring old red ones! I did have a double red cutting from a friend..

I did find a pink and yellow bi-coloured single (yellow rimmed) at....Walmart? I think?

And my peach single was from Rona. I will keep my eyes open, and if I see anything I think you'll like, I'll just buy it for you.

Sure wish I could root hibiscus, but I;ve never had any luck...

To root them you need to get a young shoot when they start to grow good. Strip off all of the leaves and stick it in some soil (rooting hormone if you have it) and keep moist and warm until it starts to grow new leaves again.

I even bought #3 rooting hormone! Ha! I will keep trying... Thanks for the advice. I should try them in my rooting aquarium to help keep them warm and humid.
