Hi everyone,
We were recently transferred from the Gulf Coast to Central Texas, and expect to be here awhile. Right now the Apartment we are in has a north facing balcony with shade all day. My south front porch has some sun but not enough to acomodate all my hibi's. I Am sad enough to leave my coastal home but I don't want to give up my beloved hibiscus.Most of these are in large containers.I prefer these in the ground so I already feel bad enough that they are in containers ,, now this ..

How crazy is it to maybe put them in some artificial heat/light everyday ..like the kind we used to keep baby chicks warm and clipped it onto the balcony railing. If it is a possibility , how long each day would I do this ..Any suggestions are welcome .
