For growing hibiscus from cuttings use young shoots with a length of about ten centimeters with three or four leaves. Cut them in July-August. If the escape of large leaves, cut half of the leaf plate. Thus the shaft will evaporate less water.
Rooting cuttings of Chinese roses in the water or moist substrate. For rooting in water, place the escape in an opaque container with water. However, it is noticed that plants rooted in the water grow much less than those of the hibiscus, which were rooted in the substrate.
To root the shoots in the substrate, sprinkle on the bottom of the container a layer of expanded clay. It will put the soil, consisting of equal amounts of leaf, peat soil or washed sand. Moisten the substrate and put in it the cuttings and cover them glass jars. Within a month the shoots will take root.
