They are nice and not small!   Flower size is 8″ in diameter. I like they bloom late so that can stretch the tulip blooming season for me.

坐在涼棚下眼前就近就是它們. 花徑不小有8吋的直徑. 其實每天好像都還會增大一些.  晚開的種類有好處是可以延長賞花的花期.

Hibiscus seeds germination in day 6. 大花扶桑種子發芽了,第6天的進度.

Hibiscus seeds germination in day 6. 大花扶桑種子發芽了,第6天的進度.

1. Direct sow — takes longer time, could be over a month.
1.直播— 要很久就是了…孵出的時間超過1個月都有.
2.Use sandpaper or nail clipper file to sand the seed a bit then soak in warm water for one day.   Prepare the pot with potting soil.  Place the seeds on the top of the pot.  If the humidity is low, cover the pot with plastic wrap and a rubber band to keep the moisture.  Place the pot in warm, partial shade location.
2.破殼(用砂紙或指甲剪的挫刀磨種子幾下)後泡溫水一天,撈起點播於苗盆.  苗盆用培養土.  如果溼度低最好用保鮮膜蓋上並用橡皮筋固定.   苗盆放半日照溫暖處等發芽.
3.Open to check once a day for air circulation.  Seeds usually germinate around 7-10 days.
3.每日打開一次檢查並透氣.  約5-10天孵出.

4.You may use tweezers to pick the sprouted seeds to plant in the small pot individually or wait seedlings grow bigger when they have 6 leaves to do so.  Partial shade.  Keep seedlings warm and moist.
4.孵出後可以用鑷子夾出剛出芽的種子種在個別的小盆或等小苗長到6片葉子後再移植.   半日照.  小苗要注意保濕和保暖.
5.When the seedlings root showing from the bottom of the small pot, it is the time to transplant them.  Transplant the young plant to larger pot or plant in the ground somewhere is full sun with well drained soil.  You may start to apply fertilizer to keep them growing fast.
5.當小苗的根系從小盆的盆底冒出時可以換大盆或地植到有排水良好的土壤,全日照的地點.  可以開始施肥讓它們飆長.
