Description

Sweet Flag (Acorus calamus) is a marshland plant with orange scented leaves, used since Hippocrates' day (460-377 BCE) for curing toothache and dysentery. An infusion made from its roots is good for the stomach. Calamus was used by the Cree Indians
in divine worship and is also mentioned in the Bible as providing the holy oil for anointing altar and sacred vessels in Exodus. Known as "Vacha", it is a highly valued medicinal plant in Ayurveda.

Growing instructions
Calamus is a bog garden plant and can be stored in sealed plant containers, but also grows in the garden in "normal" ground. It requires a moist (or wet) loamy soil and can be sown in nutritious muddy compost, as well as in a pot standing in water. Sweet Flag seeds planted in December germinate the following spring. Otherwise, it is recommended to sow them and keep them at about 15 °C for 3 days, then leave them to germinate in the refrigerator at 0-5 °C and check for germinating seeds regularly. Needs plenty of light.
