Prickly Lettuce is an annual or biennial plant, slightly foetid, that is commonly considered a weed of orchards, roadsides and field crops.

The leaves grow along a spiny stem and get progressively smaller as they reach its top.

Common name: Lactuca scariola, Lactuca sylvestris
Color: grey green
Bloom time: July-September.
Height: 1-6 ft
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Before you plant your lettuce seeds, make sure the soil is prepared. It should be loose and drain well so it’s moist without staying soggy. To keep the soil fertile, feed it with organic matter about one week before you seed or transplant. Since the seed is so small, a well-tilled seedbed is essential. Large clods will reduce germination.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 25°C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • You should be able to sow additional seeds every two weeks for a continuous harvest throughout the growing season.
  • Fertilize 3 weeks after transplanting.
  • Lettuce prefers soil that is high in humus, with plenty of compost and a steady supply of nitrogen to keep if growing fast.
  • Use organic alfalfa meal or a slow-release fertilizer.

  • Make sure soil remains moist but is well-drained.
  • An organic mulch will help conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and keep soil temperatures cool throughout the warmer months.


Special Feature:
Lettuce should be harvested when full size, but just before maturity. You want it young and tender.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • The plant is used for multiple purposes in traditional medicines

Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
