how to collect seeds?

abacoianMarch 6, 2008

Hi all,

how difficult is it to collect seeds from hibiscus? And how exactly do you do it? Do you get them from the flower? Any help and photos or diagrams would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

What kind of hibiscus do you have?
Some are self-fertile, (meaning they don't need a pollinator), others aren't.
Either way, after the bloom falls off, the green part that's left will swell up - the seeds are in there. You have to wait until this seed pod turns brown before harvesting the seeds. It can take a while to happen.
