Abelmoschus esculentus is known from cultivation only and may be an ancient stabilized hybrid with Abelmoschus tuberculatus from India as one parent. For any rich, well drained substrate in full sun and sufficient watering in summer at a minimum of some 20°C. Best cultivated as an annual vegetable at a constantly rather high temperature in a greenhouse or wintergarden.
