Mutant but pretty. It looks like it has another flower growing beyond the yellow stamen #hibiscus #mutant #bestofmay

It’s very strange, particularly with the miniature flower being beyond the yellow stamens Julie…most peculiar! @juliesgarden

My tropical hibiscus has loved overwintering in the bathroom. It may have found its new forever home. Note the mutant flower at the top. It looks like it has another flower growing in front of its stamen 🌺 #topical-hibiscus #hibiscus #red #indoor #ajmay #bestofmay

Morning again Pauline, it’s certainly very happy in the bathroom. It’s doing so well it may outgrow the available space at this rate! @flof1952

Morning Jane, it’s done very well in this spot. I just wonder how long before it outgrows the space. I may need a plan B before too long! @pelly

The leaves are massive compared to what they were before I moved it indoors for the winter Julie, it might go into shock if I took it outside again 🥶😂 @juliesgarden

It’s certainly a lot happier here Jeff. I don’t think it would be very impressed if I exposed it to our lovely outdoor spring weather ☔️ @jeatacake

Definitely not! I think the really hot spell we had last year is what it needs, if not your bathroom!

I had it outside during the hot spell last summer but it looks a lot happier in the bathroom. One of those rare overwintering successes (as opposed to the ensete)! @jeatacake

So beautiful. I've not had any luck with mine. I had three buds this year and was hopeful it would bloom, but no, not a single flower. Do they fare better in pots? I thought or is that just in winter 🤔🧡🧡

comment
italydiva

That’s a shame Chris. This one is a standard and stays in a pot. Easier to move indoors for the winter that way @midnightgardener

It’s interesting now that I’ve brought it inside to overwinter, the colour has changed somewhat. I really like it’s indoor look! @hkyfvr @juliesgarden @gjones @hebelover

I have found that with mine too. My largest one has gone into full dormancy and has lost all its leaves. It is still alive but it looks like a pot of twigs. 😆

That’s interesting Diane. This is my first year overwintering, so I shall have to see how it does. I’ve put it in the bathroom in the hope the humidity will help @hkyfvr

It should Angela. My other hibiscus plants are smaller and I am treating them as houseplants. They still have their foliage and in previous years have started to bud in the Spring indoors. The big one was just too big to keep upstairs so it has been pruned and is dormant but I still give it some water and light. 😄

Cataloguing - new Morrisons purchase. Sitting happily amidst the fern and dicentra. Let’s see if I can keep it alive! 😬 No direct sun. Between 10 degrees & 28 degrees C. April - Sept water 2-3 times per week. Oct - March water 1 x weekly

This one will have to come indoors Jane and will require mist spraying. I don’t have a great track record with this sort of thing but I thought it was worth a go @pelly

That’s good to know Kerry. In that case I’m wondering if I may be better off putting it in the summerhouse overwinter, rather than in the house with the central heating 🤔 @kez001uk
