Care Tips

Hardwood cuttings grow well in a sheltered position in full sun. They prefer a well-drained alkaline or neutral soil. Cuttings should be staked as the plants produce fine roots at soil level that may break if the stalk is moved during a wind. Potted Hibiscus should stand outside during summer and be moved indoors during winter. When indoors, they require regular misting, and frequent pruning will help to shape the plant as well as encourage flowers.
