Description

In Europe Canna indica is known primarily as an indoor plant, cultivated for its beautiful flowers. In the tropics, Indian shot is also grown for its large starchy rhizomes. They are relatively fibrous, but can be processed into flour.

Canna indica seed, content: 5 Indian shot seeds
Sowing and cultivation
Canna indica is a tropical plant for balcony, patio or greenhouse, which also thrives indoors. The seeds germinate quickly if the hard husk is filed a little (do not hurt the seed inside the husk, though!). You can pre-soak the slightly filed seeds in water for about 24 and then sow them approximately 1 cm deep in pots. Ideally, use coco soil and keep the seedlings warm.
