    I have some Hibiscus cuttings in water also. They have 2" leaves already but only white bumps on the stem. Will the white bumps eventually turn into roots or am I wasteing my time?
    Thanks

    they will turn into roots eventually, hibiscus take quite a long time to root. the best time to root them would be in late summer ( august) you can also plant them in soil with some rooting hormone cover them with plastic and get the same results from rooting them in water, and once the cuttings you have in water have roots and it si time to pot them up do them in a 2" or 4 " pot so that they will not remain water logged for too long and the new roots will not rot. also be very careful the roots will be extremely delicate and you will probably loosethe plant if you break al lot of them off. hope this helps
