What other plant parents say
Keep them moist but not swimming in water! They love the sun, so direct to slightly shaded (placing them facing south or east is best!). Keep them at roughly around 70 degrees because they are spring to summer plants.
I’m growing them inside for now but they do increase pollinators so I plan to transfer them outside when they are big enough! I started these from seeds and germinated them into seedlings.
