I started with a package of groundcherry seeds that I started inside in early March. I ended up with 9 seedlings and I slowly hardened them off, moving them outside. These seedlings have stayed fragile and short and now, about 8 or 9 weeks later, I am down to 3. Any tips on growing groundcherries? I live in northern Louisiana, zone 8.

When they grew in my yard (wild) they looked pretty fragile until around August. They were one of the last plants to show up. I think they really like the warmer weather. Mine always had a "mother plant" that they grew close to and kind of leaned on, until it got close to time for them to bear fruit. Then they seemed tougher.

good to know, thanks. I'll just try to hang in there until it is constantly hot (right now it's 80 one day and 55 the next). Maybe I'll put the two in the ground next to each other and close to a tomato plant.
