Watercress is an aquatic plant species with the botanical name Nasturtium officinale. This should not be confused with the quite different group of plants with the common name of nasturtium, botanical name Tropaeolum.

Color: green
Bloom time: May to frost
Height: 1.00 to 2.00 feet

Fill a recycled container. After putting holes in the base of the container, fill it 3/4 full of seed compost. Add watercress seeds. Sprinkle watercress seeds over the surface of the seed compost

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 85°F

Care:

  • After putting holes in the base of the container, fill it 3/4 full of seed compost.
  • Place it onto a plastic tray and wet the soil, using a plastic bottle with a few holes in its lid as a spray.
  •  

 


Care:

 

 

  • Snip the top shoots off with a pair of scissors.
  • At this time the watercress will be 6-20 inches (15-50 cm) tall.
  • When you cut it, the plants will regrow quickly and become bushier.
  • Always wash watercress well before eating it.

Very fast germination just on the third day from seeding. Happy with that but has to update the review later based on the yield. If it gives yield just as shown in the picture it will be excellent. Le
