I've grown Hibiscus from seed. A few pointers, it seems to me I potted them up to the first set of leaves. Mine also died up to almost the soil line and then came back. So don't throw them out!!! I don't know why they did it but it's happened several (times) years. Then they grew just fine. I planted several new ones last year and they are doing just fine considering we have been under an extreme drought, not sure they will bloom this year, probably next year will be their first. Also to let you know the flouecent light help but you will still get stretching, might try hardening them off (shaded, but bright filtered light, just an hour or so and then slowly increase daily. Give them a few weeks this way then you can gradually move them into sunlight, just remember the sun is strong this time of year). Good Luck, Kathy
