Planting & Care

Soil & Water:Hibiscus thrive in sunny, very warm areas in rich and well-drained soil, add add aged manure or compost to the bed. Seedlings should be kept moist, but not soggy.

Planting & Growing: Indoors sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart in seed starting mix. Keep very warm and moist with a strong light source until ready to transplant outdoors. When 2 inches tall, transplant individual seedlings to 4 inch pots. Maintain 65-70 degree temperature. Feed with half strength liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks. Gradually acclimate to outdoors. Transplant seedlings 8-12 inches apart. Pinch tops when 10 inches tall to encourage bushy form. If container grown, choose pots 18 inches in diameter and depth.

Harvesting & Storage:After flowers finish blooming, harvest the calyx at the base of the blossom. Snap off calyxes and dry in a single layer.
