- Cultivation of turmeric in grow bags
Planting turmeric rhizome –
Turmeric can be easily planted by rhizome , plant each seed rhizome 2 to 4 inches deep and spaced around 4 to 6 inches apart in month of April or march
Soil Preparation -
The first step is to prepare an ideal soil, for turmeric the soil should be loose, well-draining, free of big clumps or rocks, and fairly rich in organic matter and slightly acidic in nature. Also application of slow or mild release fertilizer would be great for plant in its mature stages.
Size of grow bags –
Turmeric is not a plant that grows deep , that’s why size and surface area of the grow bags matters the most , we recommend a grow bag which is large in size along with good drainage and aeration .
Planting location –
Turmeric grows well in full sun to partial shade, but always remember that it is sensitive to scorching heat as it grows best in moderately warm temperature.
Watering requirement –
Turmeric demands most of the water when it is actively growing, but not nearly as much before it sprouts as the un-sprouted rhizome seeds are prone to rotting if left in standing water.
