    I am interested in starting to grow some different types of hibiscus plants. I am new to this type of hobby and am looking for advice. I have purchased three differnt types from the local nurserys but am looking for the more exotic. I have access to a very nice green house where I plan on growing the plant until it is of larger size and then replanting at my home. Please feel free to contact me if you have any advice or also grow/propagate the hibiscus. Thanks. Ron PS- I live in tucson and have access to lots of cactus if interested in trading and possibly can trade some carnvirous plants as well

    I live in northern New York, and we have a bunch of temperate hibiscus in our yard. Basically, they can take a lot of sun, at least in my climate. We have some that get full sun all day in summer. And they keep coming back every year with huge blooms. I don't know if you're thinking about getting the kind of hibiscus I have, but nonetheless, I'd assume they're all very easy to grow, just give 'em lots of sun. They don't seem to care much about water.

    Here's the type we grow:

    Drosera36- I read these can be propagated via cuttings... Do you guys cut them back at any time? Just wondering if we could work anything out for me to get some parts so I can try to make my brother a few plants. Since he has aparently yet to ask you... Let me know if we could work something out

    Jim-Scott, excuses excuses! LOL

    We don't tend to cut them back, but I can if you want. I did once try to make a cutting, but it quickly wilted, so I'm not sure what's going on there. I do have other colors, such as pink and also sorta a pinkish-red. Many also are dropping seeds now, so let me know if you want me to collect some.

    Pinkish-red:

    Wow- very cool! Do they grow all around your plants from seeds? Any idea how easy to tend to grow? Cuttings, seeds- whatever... I'm sure we could work something out. How big are those flowers? They look HUGE!

    No, for some reason, no little babies appear, just the adults. I've never tried growin' them from seeds though. The flowers are usually about 9-10 inches across, and are smaller towards the end of the season, around now when they're about 6 inches across. I would be interested in any sort of cacti if your brother has any extra. I can send you as many seeds as you want.
