Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 9 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

LEARN from Husband Pieter's Successful Rooting of Hibiscus syriacus Jeanne D'Arc

When we did add the latest patio, we had to cut down an older Hibiscus tree. Yes, it was more than a shrub after all those years.
You can see how thick its stem was from link below this post, about our Hibiscus syriacus Jeanne D'Arc & Our Life in Italy.
This is the double blooming Hibiscus syriacus Jeanne D'Arc.
We're so happy for having now more of this one!
Let me show you how husband Pieter managed to do this...
Starting out with a cheap plastic container from Walmart - drilling drainage holes in it.
A bag of Quikrete Play Sand from Home Depot...
On August 5 of last year, Pieter did mix in just a bit of potting soul and here are the six starters he cut off.
Covered up with white plastic bag for humidity, creating a kind of greenhouse for high humidity and waiting.
On September 3, they got transferred to individual pots. The smallest one still got a 'greenhouse' treatment but using a cut off plastic bottle for a cover. Important is that light can penetrate.
Very healthy looking growth already of this Hibiscus syriacus Jeanne D'Arc on September 3!
This Hibiscus syriacus Jeanne D'Arc is smaller but looking also very happy and healthy!
This is on August 12 of 2018.
It will take years for them to have some shape and for growing into a nice shrub and eventually a little tree!
It took us about six years to grow a Hibiscus syriacus Jeanne D'Arc before, the only one surviving from several and we gifted it to a dear friend who's Mom used to have one. Just a sentimental memory of her dear Mom and we were thrilled to hand that to her.
We will wait another 5 years for having our 2 young ones blooming and being pretty again!
Below is a good video about taking cuttings and growing your own shrubs:

  2. Hello Mariette, The plants you and Pieter propagated have a double significance--not only breeding that variety of flower, but also preserving the heritage of your friend and her mother. The people involved with plants add their own aura, such as the heritage plants we read about that are descended from Jefferson's from his Monticello gardens.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      You are so right in this double significance as to us it is a remembrance of our life and work in Italy and to our dear friend it was a sweet memory of her dear Mom! That is always worthwhile for keeping alive and it creates a living heritage.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      These double Hibiscus are keepers and as long as we can propagate some, we will do so.
      Our summer was a very nice one, not a dry one. We had lots of rain in the spring but so far we rolled through summer without any extremes.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    1. Dearest Dimi,
      We do have several double ones, under the label (scroll way below down this page...) 'Our Hibiscus' you will find them.
      The white one is a favorite but as always, the most beautiful ones are also the most tricky for keeping alive.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Thank you, we both love it also because it is white and double. With patience we will have another one that blooms for us.
      We really wanted her to have this special plant, a memory of her dear Mom. She lives by memories as she also lost her husband but children and grandchildren give her joy!
      Hugs,
      Mariette
