Hibiscus syriacus is an ornamental plant commonly called in Italy by the name of Hibiscus.


This plant, which belongs to the Malvacce family, includes 400 different species which are widespread above all in Europe, Oceania, America, Asia and Africa.

Below we will go to see how to grow these plants by directly burying its leaves.

Don’t be scared, caring for and growing hibiscus is not an extremely difficult job. The most important thing to successfully complete this operation is to be careful and delicate.

Let’s get started now!

How to reproduce the Hibiscus from its leaves – New very simple method!

The first thing to do is to remove the leaves from the stem of the plant.

After having taken the quantity of leaves that we deem appropriate, and which appear healthy, we place a plastic bowl on a flat plate. Please note: first you need to create a small hole in the center of the base of the bowl.

Next we fill the bowl with sand. We pour the sand up to the brim and then add some water. The water must exceed the level of the sand so as to cover it completely.

When the water appears absorbed by the sand, and we see some of it floating in the plate below, we will be able to neatly arrange the leaves inside. The important thing is to distribute the leaves along the entire perimeter of the bowl, taking care to leave the center empty.

After 25 days we pour a drop of water into our bowl and then gently extract the leaves. Once they have all been recovered we will be able to admire the spontaneously born roots.

We then remove the excess sand by pouring a little water over it.

At this point we fill a flowerpot with garden soil.

Finally we plant only one leaf in the ground and water it with water. Obviously we can repeat the same process for the other remaining leaves.

After 30 days we will be able to admire the birth of some new leaves in the ground.
