The best way to root a hibiscus plant is to take a cutting in the middle of the summer, but not late in the summer, when the branches are too hard to cut.

The cutting should be cut with a diagonal cut, since this helps the cutting to grow.

Do not use dirty pruning shears.

All leaves but the top two or three should be taken off of the cutting.

Dip the stem in honey and place in about 3 inches of water, that has one drop of peroxide in it. Change the water about once a week, and make sure the one drop of peroxide is added. These cuttings won't root in softened water. So if you have softened water, buy water in bottles to root the cutting in.

In 4 weeks there should be roots, beginning to grow, on the cutting. Don't try to transplant them while the roots are still white in color. Wait until they turn tan to plant them.


When you plant them in the ground, put some peat moss and sand, mixed together, into the dirt they are going to be planted in.

Here is a link that tells a lot of good information on propagating this type of plant:

I would dip it in rooting hormone and then plant it.
