Planting & Care
Plant where they will receive a minimum of 5 to 6 hours of full sun per day. Plants grown in weak sun may not die at once, but they weaken gradually. Give them plenty of organic matter when planting and don’t crowd them.Wear sturdy gloves to protect your hands from prickly thorns.

Sunlight: full sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 75 C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • Enrich the soil with leaf mold or well-rotted organic matter to encourage good drainage.
  • Dig a hole 2 to 3 times as deep as the bulbs are high and set the bulb in the hole pointy side up.
  • Fill the hole with soil and tamp gently.
  • Space bulbs at a distance equal to 3 times the bulb’s diameter.
  • For a good effect, plant plants in groups of 3 to 5 bulbs.



Harvesting: 6-8 days

Care:

  • Feed plants on a regular basis before and throughout the blooming cycle (avoid chemical fertilizers and pesticides if you’re harvesting for the kitchen).
  • Once a month between April and July, apply a balanced granular fertilizer (5-10-5 or 5-10-10).
  • Allow ¾ to 1 cup for each bush, and sprinkle it around the drip line, not against the stem.



Special Feature:
Green manuring of rice with dhaincha (Sesbania aculeata) is widely practised under irrigated puddle-transplanted conditions. In flood-prone lowlands, the rice is established through direct seeding early in the season and flooding occurs after 1–2 months of crop growth following regular rains.
