Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Aruna is generally regarded as a tender plant, so remember to ensure that temperatures are mild before moving outdoors. Aruna needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Aruna from seed

Aim to sow 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm). For optimal germination, soil temperature should be a minimum of 18°C / 64°F.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Aruna about 38 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Aruna

Aruna is tender, so ensure you wait until all danger of frost has passed in your area before considering planting outside.
