Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica), packet of 30 seeds, organic

$4.95

Gotu Kola seeds are again being harvested and we will have them sporadically through summer and early winter.

Family:  Carrot (Apiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 8 to 12, otherwise grown as a potted plant or summer annual, 90 days to harvest

(Gotu Kola, Brahmi, Hydrocotyl asiatica)  Creeping perennial native to the tropics of the world, especially Hawaii, India and East Africa.  Traditional usage (Ayurveda): increases mental clarity and imparts long life.  Tasty in salads, especially the young leaves.  Plant prefers rich, fertile soil or fast-draining soil and is highly productive and attains a bright green color when given regular applications of liquid fertilizer (fish emulsion, kelp tea, compost tea).  Plant in greenhouse conditions in very excellently drained soil, just pressed into the surface of the soil and water occasionally.  The seeds will probably germinate in 30 to 90 days. Seed sown in the unheated greenhouse in the fall may give substantially better germination rates, but generally not until spring.  Work seedlings up in pots and transplant to the field when the soil has really warmed up. Field-grown gotu kola can get quite large, yielding several pounds per plant.

      Hello Gargi, Not at this time–seeds are produced by the mature plant in August through October and we will always have them at that time. Right now, unless you’re international, the plants are available and a very good way to go. Actually, growing Gotu Kola from seed is quite difficult, while increasing the plant by means of planting the rooted nodes is quite easy. Buying the plants will give you a year’s head start, and please hurry, we will run out of these. richo

      No, we suggest getting gotu kola plants, much easier, as long as you’re within the US. Anyway, I’ll be glad to e-mail you when the seed comes available. r

      OK, we just (2/26/2019) cleaned a new batch. Please hurry to order before they run out. I’m assuming you are international so seeds are your only choice. For domestic growers, I recommend getting the plants instead, it gives you a huge head start.

      You can order them online at strictlymedicinalseeds.com. I may be talking myself out of an order here, but in my experience in the highlands of kenya, gotu kola grows in great abundance. you would need to know how to recognize it. Inapatikana bwana, ukitafuta utapata! Riko
