Its Hard to believe that just last yr,about this time this baby was just 3 #stemcuttings I was twinning together as it grew. It gave me 1 bloom to show me it was ok...Now,Loving the these #lavenderblooms They are almost bigger than the #tree and limbs combined. I am so tickled to see it doing so well! I guess next yr it will catch up. I'm going to take more cuttings and hopefully I'll have more babes. 🌸 #roseofsharon #hibiscus #rosa-sinensis #malvaceae

@hannahchristine All I did was make sure when I cut them that I had 3 leaf sections to take off at the bottom,going into soil I just had regular soil,placed rocks in bottom of pot,soil,planted cuttings,and watered til it ran out of pot well,then mulched in a thick layer,keep mulch off of cuttings..(I placed river rock(small ones) around cuttings to make sure there was air flow)for overwintering. Leave the rest of leaves on and let them fall off naturally. It's not to late to try...⬇️

Just Make Sure to keep it out of direct North Winds if u keep it outside. Mine did stay and it came back. During the winter months..water it alittle,but make sure u have good drainage. I hope this helps you with the #roseofsharonpropagation Let me know how it grows😍

Awesome!!! Hopefully I can do this successfully! For some reason I don't do so well with transplants or progration. But I received a lot of different cuttings some with roots and some with not...so I will find out how well I've matured since last year...lol I did not add sand though, I do have some I can add. Do you think I need to add the sand? @Acetaker

If u have already planted it don't bother the baby..it will mess up process it's making. But u can just add it to other plants as u do pots. I just found it works well with any soil and helps keep out knats etc when added to top of soil b4 mulching or adding Rock for Appearance and helps hold heat for plant.💕 @drea0508

@Acetaker no Chris, it wasn't cuttings. Someone threw out entire plants with roots so I saved them and gave most away but kept 3. One large plant and 2 smaller ones that placed in a pot.

I love these :) used to have a spectacular one on stem. It died sadly but I have a pretty bicolored white and red bush that's taken the torch as replacement.

@Acetaker this might seem like a silly question but what is stem cutting? #stilllearning

3w
comment
Acetaker

@mommamal5712 Its not a silly question at all girl😊 Stem cutting I'd when u take and cut a piece,say for instance this plant,their weren't any seedlings so I cut 3 hard stems,at an angle, off of the tree,make sure u give your cutting enough length to take leaves off bottom,about 3-4 each and place them into soil to root. I have used any soil. Then place it where it doesn't get direct sun, morning sun and afternoon shade. I hope this helps u and I didn't ramble on. Cont. Next line

@Acetaker thank you for explaining! In the past I always had horrible luck with plants but when my mom passed away almost 2 years ago my step dad let me have most of her plants. I've had really good luck with all of hers. I haven't killed any of them! One of them is a Rose of Sharon and that one means the most to me (it's kinda a long story). I didn't know that you could do stem cutting with it to get a new plant. Thank you again for your help!
