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.
