Growing hibiscus from cutting
July 17, 2015 | Gardening | 8 Comments|
Today I am sharing about how to grow hibiscus from cutting.
If you notice, there are new growth in almost all leave nodes and I am pruning at height of 12-15 cm.
This is the head branch after cutting. Ensure there are no sign of any disease.
Remove all big leaves
Fill the small pot with good soil (potting soil) and just plant the cutting in the pot. Pot size do play vital role.
Put the pot in zip-lock bag
Keep it where it can get good sunlight but not direct sunlight.After 4 weeks , I see new leaves around the stem.
Hope to see blooms next spring.
Try your hands with cutting and share your experience.
If you will apply some root hormone , it will help !
I take cuttings all year round in West Virginia. I have successfully rooted Hibiscus with no special lighting, zip locks, or blah, blah, blah. Just use rooting hormone, seed starter, seal in a two liter plastic bottle cut in half, mist as needed, and ignore for eight weeks.
