Maca is a Peruvian cress variety (Lepidium) the root of which is used as a medicinal plant similar to ginseng. In the Andes, Maca has a millennia-old tradition as a medicinal plant and food.

Lately, the food industry and the superfood movement have also discovered maca as it contains much vitamin B, C, and E as well as trace elements. However, the root is only rarely marketed as a whole but mostly ground in powder form.

Taken for several weeks, maca is said to operate as an aphrodisiac and enhance potency as well as lust. For men, it can also promote erection. In general, maca is said to provide more energy in everyday life.

Sowing Instructions
Maca can be grown from seed unproblematically. The plant is considered to be extremely robust because in nature it is exposed to the extreme climatic conditions of the Andes (temperature variations, strong winds, and intense UV radiation). In the wild, it grows best when its seeds germinate before the rainy season.
Maca seeds should be pressed about half a centimeter deep into the soil and watered immediately. After the sowing and during the entire growth phase the substrate should be kept cool and moist.
