  • Germination: 22°C
  • Growth: 24°C

Light

  • Calendula can grow both in full light and low light areas.
  • Start your plant at 12 hours of light per day.
  • Increase to 16 hours per day over the first month.
  • Decrease to 10 hours per day over the second month.

Soil

  • Calendula does best with a rich, well-drained soil.
  • For calendula, we recommend this soil mix.

Time Of Growth

  • Expect about 55 to 60 days from seed to harvest, depending on variety.

HOW TO START

  • Seeds can be sown directly into pots

WATERING & CARE

  • Water as needed. In order to promote flowering, stress the plant by reducing water intake after about 4 or 5 weeks. For three days, do not water your plant (or water very little if you have a rapidly draining soil). After three days gradually increase water. You should see blooms after about 3 days.
  • Harvest when fully bloomed, using only the petals for consumption.

How To Use

  • The fresh petals are edible, making for a bright edible garnish. Dried they can be used to make teas or tinctures, beneficial to health.
