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