Technical Information

Planting information:

The best time to plant it is spring, but it is quite possible to sow the seeds in the fall and leave them submerged during the winter. To do this, remove the flower heads when they begin to decay and then cover the seeds with a thin, even layer of soil under water or broadcast sow them. It is a plant that does well submerged in water in soil rich in sediment, nutrients and humus. The seeds can be placed so that there is a space of 5 to 10 between each specimen in the water. In the spring, the seeds germinate and the division of the multiplying tufts can proceed. These are plants that benefit from full sun exposure, so they do not need to be protected under a tree to grow well. Seeds that fall on the surface of the water can float for a year before germinating.
