We used to live in the Marshall Islands. We had a lot of wonderful tropical plants in our garden there. Most were in pots because the "soil" was pure coral sand. The plants were all outdoors and received 100+ inches of rain a year. Our humidity was very high all year. Here are a few of the Hibiscus I had there. I really miss them, but I have 3 now in my NM greenhouse.

I agree! They are so beautiful, and they have so many blooms. Mine bloom all year round in the greenhouse. I've even accidentally broken off branches, and the buds still open. I'm having fun propagating mine.
