2 Hibiscus in same pot

natiebFebruary 2, 2014

I bought a hibiscus that is blooming pink and yellow flowers. My guess is two different cuttings ended up in the same pot. Should I separate? The plant is about 1 year old I think, and not sure how big it will get.

Natieb,
From experience, I have only attempted this once, and was lucky to have success. This is a common practice with box store nurseries, and separating the two plants is the equivalent of a major surgery in the plant world. I do have other plants in the same situation, and found it easier to start a new cutting of the original versus the separation.
I would let sleeping dogs lie.
