Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Jalastar is thought of as tender, so remember to ensure that temperatures are mild before moving outdoors. Ideally plant in loamy and sandy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 7.0 and 8.5 as Jalastar likes to be in neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Jalastar from seed

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