- Roselle is a species of Hibiscus probably native to West & East Africa and South-East Asia including Northeastern India, used for the production of bast fibre and as an infusion, in which it may be known as carcade.
- Moist Soils, Well-Drained Soils.
- Plant this species in well-drained, slightly acidic soil (pH = 5 - 6.5) that is rich in organic matter and moisture retentive.
- It is critical to use the right type of fertilizer.
- The fertilizer needs to be one with low phosphorus, moderate nitrogen, and high potassium.
- Fertilize every two to three weeks.
- If the leaves are turning brown at the tips, that is a sign they are getting too much nitrogen.
- That is a warning sign of stress, but don't panic, just prune the bad leaves and adjust your fertilizer frequency.
- The most critical aspect of the fertilizer is that the phosphorus content is low.
- Too much phosphorus can sicken a hibiscus in a matter of a couple weeks.
- Full Sun.
- Moderate Water.
