I live in South Mississippi, zone 8. Hot and humid. I love gardening and experimenting with different plants. I focus a lot on herbal plants.

Does anyone have any experience with #thairedroselle #roselle #cranberryhibiscus ??? I have 4-5 of these containers and something is getting to them! Help! #pests

Not sure what might be after them. If it were me I'd use some neem on them, or whatever your usual broad spectrum insecticide is. Roselle is tough though and once it gains it's legs it'll take off and you'll soon wonder what you were so worried about. LOL. It is getting late in the season though so be sure they're getting enough sun and warmth, they love that. :)

@patchmomma It’s HUGE now. I’ll post an updated picture later today. I’ve gotten many fruits from it! I just can’t decide whether to keep it in a container or plant it in the ground? 😬😬

Excited to see how it's grown! I didn't realize it was an older pic. :). If it were me I'd keep it in the pot as it's getting late in the season, especially if it's flowering and producing calyces.
