We would like to give you a little guide on how to multiply the hibiscus with seeds.
Multiply garden hibiscus with seeds - 3 options
1. The garden hibiscus with itself. Therefore, look for young plants under your existing shrubs. In this case, simply dig up the seedlings and plant them in their intended location. Before doing this, gently loosen the soil under the bush and carefully pull out the young plants.
2. The seeds can also be sown outdoors in autumn. They remain in the seedbed over winter. The growing area is prepared with seed soil, then the seeds are laid out on this special soil. Then cover the seeds with a half centimeter layer of dry seeding soil and gently moisten the soil with water.
The hibiscus grown from seeds do not necessarily look like the mother plant. In the gardening language it says: the plant is "not seed-proof".
3. You can sow the hibiscus indoors in the seed box in mid-March. To do this, fill the box with seed soil and then moisten it. Now lay your hibiscus seed on it. Finally, cover the seeds with a half centimeter layer of seed soil and spray it carefully with water. Place the sowing box in a bright place. However, you should avoid direct sunlight. Keep the seed soil moist until the seeds germinate in about 2 to 3 weeks.
Another important note: Before you harvest the hibiscus seeds for sowing in autumn, wait until the seed pods turn brown.
