Rice

Oryza is a genus of wetland grasses. It includes the major food crop rice (species Oryza sativa and Oryza glaberrima). Members of the genus includes both annual and perennial species. Rice can be grown at home given the right amount of soil, water, and other nutrients. Rice thrives in wet conditions, specifically standing puddles of water or swamp-like conditions. It needs full sunlight and warm temperatures of at least 21°C plus 3 - 6 months to grow in these conditions.

Plant

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Start your plants off in a nursery bed and transplant them when they reach 15cm in height. When transplanting, they should be planted about 30cm apart into a muddy bed, ideally into acidic clay. At least 10cm of water should cover the soil. Plants need full sun and a minimum temperature of 21C which must be achieved over a 6 month period. The summer months are best for growing as the days are longer with more sunshine.
