Planting and care

  • To sow, the smaller seeds should be sown in a light but rich starting medium buried shallowly beneath the surface of the soil
  • Cardamom requires steady supply of moisture and will not tolerate drought.
  • If growing in a greenhouse, it should be kept humid and maintained carefully.
  • Cardamom is not tolerant of cold, but should be kept in a location with many hours of partially occluded sunlight.
  • Cardamom requires approximately 3 years of growth to produce capsules containing seeds.
  • After the flowers mature, they will gradually dry out as capsule develops.
  • These can be collected when capsules begin to turn green, and later dried on screens over the course of 6-7 days. Turn frequently.
