This plant is worldwide famous for its juicy and sweet fruits. This plant can grow maximum 18 inches. It loves to grow during cold climate and blooms white flowers.
Watering & Sunlight: These plants like to grow in full sunlight and need moisture. Do not let the soil dry. Keep watering regularly to ensure moderate moisture in soil. However, daily watering is not required. Drainage in pot is necessary by making sufficient holes in bottom.
Soil: We should prepare the potting mix in such way so that water should reach bottom of pot within 15-25 seconds. This is the basic quality of fast draining soil. Such soil also contributes to make the potting mix more aerated. To make the ideal potting mix for this plant, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix vermi-compost (20 %), coco peat (20 %) and garden soil (40%).
