Description

As an understory plant, cardamom prefers humus-rich soil, slightly on the acidic side. Sow seeds approximately 1/8 under fine soil and keep the medium evenly moist. Transplant to pots when you see two pairs of true leaves. Grow on outdoors in summer or year-round in warm regions. Cardamom needs to stay moist and does not tolerate drought. In hot, arid regions, provide extra humidity through the leaves. Cardamom mayflower 3 years after planting and the rhizomes can live for decades with good care. Move plants indoors at the end of summer in areas with freezing weather. Place indoor plants where they receive 6 to 8 hours of bright but filtered light. Transplant older plants every few years to prevent root binding. Cardamom is fairly easy to grow indoors but remember that mature plants can achieve up to 10 feet (3 m.), so choose a location with plenty of space for the plant to stretch out
