Tropaeolum majus
Tropaeolaceae

Temperature

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

Light

  • Nasturtium does best with plenty of light.
  • Start your plant at 12 hours of light per day
  • Increase to 16 hours a day over the first month.
  • Decrease to 10 hours per day over the second month. 

Soil

  • Nasturtium prefers poor quality soils. Do not fertilize.
  • For nasturtium, we recommend this soil mix.

Time Of Growth

  • Expect about 55 to 65 days from seed to harvest, depending on variety. 

HOW TO START

  • Plant seeds about 1 cm deep directly into growing container. Keep soil moist and in plenty of light for germination. 

WATERING & CARE

  • Water regularly but take care not to over water. 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 within a week or ten days.
  • Remove dead blooms for prolonged flowering.

How To Use

  • The nasturtium flower can be used as a garnish for salads, added into butter, or stuffed individually with soft cheeses or spreads.
  • The foliage, with its hint of pepper flavor, can also be used in salads.
