What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? Took too long to mature
This is the first time I have ever tried to grow rice. I spaced my rows about 7 inches apart and planted seeds every 3 inches. 95% of the seeds came up and each plant had around 5 tillers. I planted in mid May and here it is late Oct and only a few heads of grain are ready. I would probably have more but some mice decided to enjoy it and the summer was mild. I planted in a raised bed and only watered it a few times after it started to flower. I will try this again next year with my remaining seeds and whatever seeds I get from this year. No problem with bugs only mice.
