Crossandra- Planting activities

Crossandra is propagation by seeds and also by stem cuttings. Seedlings are ready for transplanting when they have four or five pairs of leaves.

In the case of triploid varieties like Delhi, cuttings are used. Cuttings should be transplanted when sufficient roots are developed.

The land has to be ploughed three or four times. FYM @ 100 kg/cent is incorporated and mixed well in the soil.

Ridges are prepared 60 cm apart. The seedlings or cuttings are transplanted at a spacing of 30 cm.

The basal dose of fertilizers is applied at the time of planting.
