Best time to grow them is fall to winter.  Direct sow in late fall.

最佳孵絲蘭的時間為秋到冬季.  室內盆植或直播於秋末戶外全日照處.

1. Soak fresh seeds for 2 days.

1.取新鮮種子,種子要泡水2天.

2.Use potting soil in a container with lid, moist the soil and lay down the seeds.  Keep the lid on.   Place the container in warm and sunny location.  The key is humid + warm environment.

2.苗盆使用吊盆用土,土壤濕潤後放上種子. 不覆土.   蓋上蓋子悶.  苗盆放在全日照溫暖處.  孵這種子的重點是濕+熱.

3.Check twice a week to let the fresh air in, if mold occurs open the lid under direct sunlight for 2 hours to kill mold.

3.每星期開蓋檢查兩次以透氣. 若有黴菌生長,只要開蓋在直射的陽光下曬2小時就能殺菌了.

4.The seeds should germinate from 8 days to 2 weeks.

4.種子應該在8天到2週左右出芽.

5.When seeds start to spout, either move the seeds to individual small pot or wait for seedlings grow 6-8 leaves than move to ground or to individual pots.   Full sun but keep seedlings moist not dry out.

5.種子發芽時可揀出分開用小盆種植或等小苗較大約6-8片葉片時稍強壯時分開種,地植或用盆植分盆種,要注意小苗期的保濕.

Nice perennial herb and vegetable. I usually use scissors to harvest the whole plant from the ground level. They are very hardy and so easy to grow in any full sun to partial shade location. White flower balls in summer attract bees and butterflies. Flower stems before flowering is vegetable, good for stir-fry. Flowers are good for cut flower use. Self seeds easily. Plant clumps can be divided in early spring for propagation. Cold hardy and heat tolerant. USDA Zones:4-13. Mature size:2′-3′(H) x 1.5′-2′(W).

很好的多年生香菜和蔬菜. 我通常是用剪刀在土表面高度剪下整棵. 它們非常強健並容易栽種在任何全日照到半日照處. 夏天開白色小花球,頗吸引蜂蝶. 花苞可食,花可做切花. 容易自行結子繁殖. 也可於初春時分株來繁殖. 耐寒也耐熱. 成熟植株高約2-3呎,寬幅約1.5-2呎.
