GROW YOUR OWN:

 

 

THE ASHWAGANDHA PLANT TYPICALLY GROWS IN HOT AND HUMID CLIMATES LIKE INDIA'S WHERE IT ORIGINATES. BUT IT IS QUITE TOLERANT TO DRY SOIL ONCE THE PLANT IS ESTABLISHED. TO GROW YOUR OWN ASHWAGANDHA, MAKE SURE THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE REQUIREMENTS:

SOIL SHOULD BE SANDY AND WELL-DRAINING. IT'S BEST TO PLANT YOUR SEEDS IN A SUNNY PART OF YOUR GARDEN. IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO GROW ASHWAGANDHA IN A WATERLOGGED ENVIRONMENT.

THE PLANT SHOULD NOT BE WATERED ALL THE TIME, AND SHOULD BE WATERED ONLY WHEN IT SEEMS "THIRSTY."

 

THE IDEAL GROWING TEMPERATURE IS BETWEEN 70 TO 95 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. IF THE TEMPERATURE IS LOWER, EXPECT THE PLANT TO GROW AT A MUCH SLOWER PACE. THE ASHWAGANDHA PLANT SHOULD BE FULLY GROWN IN ABOUT 150 TO 180 DAYS.
