If you want to grow beautiful and fragrant flowers, you can start growing tuberose. This plant is ideal for warm weather regions. But don't worry even if you live in the northern areas because you can now grow it using the right planting techniques.
To earn money, you have to plant the tuberose in outdoor beds on a sunny area.
Growing Tuberose Indoors
Most gardeners love the fresh smell of flowers on their yards early in the morning. If you want to grow flowering plants, why don’t you start growing tuberose? Upon maturity, these plants can provide you with tall bulb flower spikes that give out a wonderful and sultry fragrance. The tuberose originated in Mexico. With this knowledge, you already know that the plant prefers warm weather but even if you’re a northern gardener, you can still grow the tuberose as long as it is planted on a sunny area. If you want beautiful blooms, you need to have patience and provide the needed heat or sunlight.
The good news is that you can grow the tuberose indoors and outdoors. You can start with pots and tubs especially if this is your first time to grow the flowering plant. You have to get well drained and quality soil. Potting mediums can also work well but be sure to have enough drainage holes in the pot. If the soil is clogged with water, the roots can easily rot. Place the pots on a sunny area. The plant will grow after a few weeks. Don’t forget to apply fertilizers (8-8-8) during active growth phase. You will see flowers after 90 to 120 days and you can clip the stems to harvest the flowers.
Tuberose Farming for Money
If you have enough yard space, it is possible to make a lot of money from tuberose farming. You need to create outdoor beds with well drained soil. Don’t plant yet and instead wait for a rainy day. If the water does not dry out in 5-6 hours, you can look for another spot. Pick a sunny spot. Plant the tuberose in clumps and cover it with 2 to 3 inches of soil. Each clump should be 8 to 10 inches apart. The plant will start to grow in a few weeks.
You have to plant at least 90 to 120 days before late summer so that you can harvest during their blooming season. You can harvest the flowers by cutting the stems. Sell the flowers in the local market for money. You have to protect the plant for the next year’s blossoms. Before the frost, dig out the bulbs and air dry them for a couple of days. After that, you can now place the plants inside paper bags that contain peat moss. With the right knowledge in planting techniques, you will be able to earn a lot of money from tuberose farming.
