Gardening - Hibiscus
This is my 16 year old Hibiscus. I started this from a cutting from a plant that was in Chris's Mom's yard. It was only a little stick about 5 inches long. I have had to repot it several times over the years.
One thing that I use is Thrive. A hormone that helps in the growth of the plant. I also use different plant foods. In the dormant stages I will feed every month or so with Miracle Grow and Bloom Buster in the flowering stages every week adding Thrive to the feed/watering mixture.
Over the years it has taken some abuse. I have let it dry out a few times. This last winter it almost died due to the cold. The picture above was taken this summer. As you can see, it is doing nicely.
I have gotten several starts from it over the years. I have planted them in several different places. Living in the south, they grow quite well. One thing for the humidity of Louisiana, plants love it here.
Be imaginative and feel free to send suggestions and share your experience.
