How to Grow:
Rau ram is a warm season crop that can be planted after your last spring frost throughout the summer up until 12 weeks before your first fall frost. You can see specific dates for your location using our FREE iOS, Android, and Universal Web App.
Rau ram is transplanted 1 per square, in full sun to part shade. Take care to notice what plants are around the area as well, see the companion plant section below. Keep your rau ram well watered.
Companion planting is a vital part of organic gardening. Companion plants assist in the growth of others by attracting beneficial insects, repelling pests, or providing nutrients, shade, or support. There are also plants that do not like being next to each other. Some plants get too tall and can provide too much shade for your plant. Sometimes certain plants attract the same pests, so it is important to try and separate these.

You can begin to harvest rau ram within 30-45 days. You can begin to harvest leaves once the plant is established. Do not take more than 1/3 of the leaves at one time.
