I have a Hibiscus cutting that has been in a cup of water for months. It kept making leaves and looking fine but only in the last few weeks am I seeing roots coming from the stem. I think it's now ready for a pot and some soil.
Of course I don't have to make artificial humidity for it here in summer. It's a huge greenhouse outdoors these days. So yes, I'd advise you do keep it humid around those cuttings, spray them and keep them moist. They will root when they are ready.
By the way, I did have some Coleus cuttings in that cup with the Hibiscus, and I think that helped with the root formation. Someone told me Coleus produce their own rooting hormone, and that's the reason they root themselves so easily.
