HOW TO CARE ELAICHI PLANT:
It is important that the soil is never allowed to dry out completely, so during the summer, and when the plant is setting fruits, increase watering to twice per day. Reduce watering to once every two days during the winter.
Cardamom requires partial shade or filtered sunlight, as it grows best under the shade of taller trees in its natural environment. Prepare a spot with rich, well-draining soil with a slightly acidic pH level of 6 to 6.8.
The best time for planting cardamom is in monsoons i.e. from June to July. Light drizzles and cloudy days best suited for its planting. One mature sucker along with a young growing shoot should be planted in a prepared pit. After planting Cardamom, pits are filled with soil and base is covered with mulch.
