I bought every one of the Tropic Escape hibiscuses I could find a couple of years ago. They were beautiful, always blooming. Toward the end of fall, I noticed I had lost a couple. They were just sticks. I found that they were cuttings that had each been started in a piece of Oasis. When the roots could no longer penetrate the Oasis, they died a slow death. Just as you check your geraniums in spring, you should be vigilant and check your smaller hibiscus pots. You can always cut the Oasis away.

Oasis is a floral foam that is sometimes used to start rooting cuttings.
