Shari, I am having fun trying my hand at hibiscus cuttings, and I found your article to be very helpful. The photos are pretty as well. Can you tell me what cultivar the last photo (light pink) is? It is lovely! Thanks again for a very useful article!

Hi DonnieBrook! The one you asked about is a miniature known as Fantasia...or sometimes Dainty Pink. I just love the pure color in it...nothing fancy, just beautiful. So glad you like it.

Thanks, Shari. I too love the simplicity and beauty of it. As my DH and I were taking our evening walk tonight, I was telling him all about your article. He, too, found it interesting. I will try your method of putting several cuttings together in one pot. I have been putting them in separate pots. I thank you again for your good work - and for letting me know about your Fantasia.

So happy that you enjoyed it. I have tried potting cuttings separately as well, and they never do as well as when several are together. Just so you know that I have tried it both ways. Good luck to you!

Yokwe,
Shari

Will it hurt my individual cuttings if I pull them out of their pots and stick 'em all together into one happy pot??? LOL

And please translate "Yokwe"...fascinated by such things!

If they are doing well, leave them be...if they are looking a bit stressed by all means join them together.

Yokwe is the Marshallese equivalent of Aloha. Traditionally the meaning is "your beauty is as the rainbow", meaning from all sides, inside and out. The more modern meaning is "love to everyone". It is used as hello, goodbye, I love you, good to see you, happy day...just like "Aloha". I love the traditional meaning, and feel that seeing the beauty in all things is a wonderful sentiment to strive for...so I use it a lot. Oh, and the pronounciation is : Yoke - way sometimes "yuck-way"

Yokwe,
Shari

Yokwe to you too, Shari! Thanks for sharing that with me. And thanks for the advice on my cuttings! Hope you are having a lovely day today on your heavenly island! Louise
