An annual herb valued for its seed husks commonly known as psyllium. Grows well in most soil types and does best in full sun. If you have a sunny window, try growing in containers for year round gardening. The flowers grow on short, flower spikes from bright green foliage.
Sow seed on top of soil and barely cover with potting mix. When the seedlings are large enough to handle they should be moved into individual pots followed by planting outside in the early months of summer. Flowering occurs in approximately sixty days, and seeds follow in the dried capsule that is left behind after flowering ends.
1. Native to Southern Asia
2. The United States is the world's largest importer of psyllium husk
