Hibiscus mutabilis, is a perennial or shrub hibiscus better known as the Confederate rose. Hibiscus mutabilis tends to be shrubby or treelike in Zones 9 and 10, though it behaves more like a perennial further north. Flowers are double and are 4 to 6 inches in diameter; they open white or pink, and change to deep red by evening.
Please use for sowing Jiffy 7 Peat Pellets, soak them in water and put in a plastic pot.
Alternatively, normal seed substrate could be used as well.
Sow the seeds on the peat pellets and cover the seeds with a thin layer of peat (about 2 mm).
Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a zip-lock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the zip-lock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom.
Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 75-83 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-75 F.
price is for 10 seeds
