I am still waiting and waiting for other pots of hibiscus to bloom. Sigh! Sadly, they are still very young and I know I need to be patient but they are growing very slowly...no buds in sight yet.
Cultivated from seedling or stem-cut, tho' growing from seed will yield a swollen caudex.
Many Chinese homes have these beautiful flowers as the Chinese name "fu-kwai" is very auspicious, brings luck, wealth and glory to the family. These are popular bonsai plants. They require sun, and water only every 3-5 days.
I have found some time to do a little gardening, unwind, de-stress, relax (do I sound very stressed?...not really, just needed to get close to nature :-D) and admire the greens over the weekend.
