Roselle or Jamaican Sorrel  (Hibiscus sabdariffa)

4in pot size

Roselle also known as "Florida cranberry" is considered a long season annual or a tender perennial that grow to a height around 4-5 feet. After the plant flowers, it produces calyxes which is used to make tea.

Roselle thrives in warm climates. It's sensitive to frost, so ensure temperatures remain above 50°F (10°C).

Provide full sunlight for optimal growth. Roselle plants prefer at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.

Plant roselle in well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. It can tolerate a range of soil types but prefers fertile soil.

Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods. However, avoid waterlogging, as roselle doesn't tolerate waterlogged conditions well.

Use a balanced fertilizer or one higher in potassium to encourage flower and fruit production. Apply fertilizer during the growing season.

Give each plant ample space to grow, as roselle can become bushy. Adequate spacing promotes good air circulation and reduces the risk of diseases.

Prune the plant to remove dead or crowded branches. This helps maintain its shape and encourages productive growth.

Pests and Diseases:
Watch for pests such as aphids or spider mites. Neem oil or insecticidal soap can help control infestations. Ensure good airflow to prevent fungal diseases.

Harvest the calyces when they are plump and fleshy. This is usually around 10-12 weeks after planting. Remove the calyces by cutting the stem just below the base of the flower.
