    Imposing herbaceous plant that can reach two and a half meters in height. It produces large leaves up to 3 meters wide, gathered in majestic tufts. The flowers are much less showy and smaller in size. They appear gathered in panicle inflorescences and are reddish in color.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It adapts to any type of soil, preferring moist and fertile ones. It likes sunny or partial shade exposure. In the summer season it benefits from regular watering. Partially rustic plant, it tolerates minimum temperatures of up to -2°/-4°c for short periods. In regions with harsh climates, during the winter the leaves dry but the base of the plant remains vital, from which new leaves and flowers emerge in the hot season.

    Sowing

    In late summer or early spring. The seeds are photoblastic and require light to germinate, which is why they must not be covered. Germination occurs two months after sowing. Watch the tutorial dedicated to the reproduction of this species from seed on our YouTube channel
