HOW TO GROW:
Growing: Year-round in tropical climate; in temperate climates sow directly inside the ground after the danger of last frost is gone or indoors in pots.
Soil: lose, fertile, well-draining soil.
Depth: 5cm deep and 30cm apart (if sowing more seeds). If planting in pots, choose a spacious pot, as they establish long taproots that can be stunted in small pots.
Light: full sun, receiving 6-8h a day.
Moisture: regular to keep the soil moist but not wet. Best when soil starts to get dry to the touch.
