Start Hibiscus seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost is predicted. Soaking seeds overnight in warm water is recommend. Nick the seed with a razor blade before sowing. Sow the flower seeds into small pots or starters and lightly cover the seed and keep moist, but not soggy. Keep the temperature consistently warm and the soil consistently moist After seedlings have developed and there are several sets of true leaves and the stems have begun to harden and become woody, the plants can be moved to larger pots or to a protected place in the garden. These young Hibiscus plants should be introduced to the sun gradually over several days.
