What are the pros? Colorful
What are the cons? Slow growing, never produced
I planted inside 40 seeds. Out of the 40, 23 germinated and began growing. The growing was extremely slow. It was in organic growing soil with led grow lighting. Three months later when they reached a height of 6 inches (yes it took 12 wks before they were 6 inches in height, stalks were not very thick) they were transplanted outside in a raised garden with organic soil/compost (60/40). 21 survived the transplant. They received feed and water. We treated the plants organically for bugs and placed a net over the entire raised garden. 16 survived the bug infestation, 2 survived the bug infestation but were deeply wounded. At then end of the growing season they were almost half way up my calf (yes I said calf). The stalk did get thicker, but it grew painfully slow. They never produced. I sent two friends these seeds (MI, OH), both complained about the same issues of slow growing and not producing at all.
I am going try again. Perhaps planting earlier will help....... Will update later.
