    I have an ordinary blue hibiscus, it drops seeds and some of the seedlings grow up and flower in a variety of colours. A few are pink, white, or white with a red throat.

    I would like to propagate from the red and white ones, any tips? I can take hard or soft cuttings.

    I've had some success with hard cuttings.

    No particularly special tricks - a sharp knife, make a clean cut underwater, dab into some rooting powder, plant in compost two per small pot, and cover with a polythene bag to keep up the humidity.

    Keep warm, remove bag weekly and spray, repeat until new shoots form, then remove bag permanently and keep warm until everything takes off.
