Kava kava is a bit finicky about the conditions it requires growth. It is difficult to grow kava kava as it is sterile and does not produce enough seeds for plantation. It is only propagated through stem cuttings and divisions.
For indoor plantation, the soil is raked to a fine texture and the pot is allowed to sit on a sunny patch. It must be watered thoroughly to meet its demand and skip the episodes of damage brought by dryness.
They can be grown any time of the year. All they want is good quality moist soil, a lot of humidity, and plenty of rainfall. Kava does not approve of drought, tropical cyclones, and volcanic eruptions and receives colossal damage.
There are pretty low chances of growing kava from seeds as the plant is sterile and is less likely to produce seeds. It is softly reminded time and again to propagate kava via stem cuttings and divisions.
Kava grows at a mediocre pace and takes three to five years to mature. The flowers of kava are reproductively weak. They do not produce seeds, even after getting pollinated by hand. If any pollination ends up being successful, then this step leads to the formation of fruit.
The plant is then further propagated via cuttings again as the fruits are quite less and do not provide many seeds for healthy plantation of kava.
