Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours before planting. Plant the seeds in seed trays or pots with well-draining gardening soil. Sow the seeds about 1cm deep and space them approximately 2.5cm apart. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged during the germination period. Germination usually occurs between 7-14 days when they are kept at the right conditions. Transfer the seedlings into pots after they grow two pairs of true leaves.

Temperature: Indigofera tinctoria thrives in warm climates with full sun.

Soil Type: Plant in well-draining, sandy or loamy soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH (around 6.0-7.5).

Pot Type: Choose pots or containers with good drainage to prevent waterlogging. Select a pot that is tall and deep rather than wide and shallow to allow for root growth, as indigo plants can grow up to 1-1.5m tall.

Watering Schedule: Water the plants regularly to keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry spells. Once established, indigo plants can tolerate short periods of drought, but they prefer regular watering.

When to Harvest: Indigofera tinctoria is typically ready for harvest when it reaches a height of 0.8-1m. Harvest the leaves when they are fully mature, usually around 4-6 months after planting.
