If you drink a glass of fresh sugarcane juice after a long day of fatigue in the summer, all of your exhaustion will vanish in a flash. This is why, during the summer months, sugarcane juicer ferries begin to appear on the streets. Sugarcane juice is both delicious and nutrient-dense. It is high in important elements such as calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus, all of which are helpful to one's health.

By the way, based on the height of the sugarcane, it appears like a large amount of land will be required to grow it. Today, though, we'll show you how to cultivate sugarcane in a pot.

Sugarcane is not something that can be grown in great quantities in a garden. For that, you'll need a lot of pots or grow bags. However, you might plan to cultivate sugarcane based on your household's needs. Sugarcane cultivation is not difficult at all.

Sugarcane, like other fruits and vegetables, can be grown in your garden. It simply takes a long time to put together. Between 9 and 12 months, sugarcane is ready for harvesting. So you carefully plant sugarcane and continue to care for it. Sugarcane can be grown in February-March and October-November of each year.

What are the basic requirements?

  • Seeds of sugarcane

  • Soil

  • A large pot, a grow bag, or any other container, such as a drum or a large bucket, can be used

  • Fertilizer

The sugarcane you carry home can also be used to start new sugarcane plants. This can be accomplished in one of two ways. To begin, soak sugarcane for two to three days in water. Small plants will emerge from the sugarcane buds (eyes/seeds) as a result of this. Now cut the sugarcane such that the bud and plant parts are not damaged. These plants can be grown in pots if desired.

Another option is to snip off the sugarcane buds and plant them in pots.

Mix equal parts sand and dung manure or earthworm manure in regular garden soil to prepare the soil. Whatever container you use to produce sugarcane, whether it's a pot, a grow bag, or another container, the width and depth should be sufficient to allow the sugarcane to grow.

After you've filled the container with soil, you should plant the sugarcane plants at an equal distance apart. Do not overcrowd a container with plants. Also, if you're planting a sugarcane bud, make sure it's looking up when you put it in the ground. You bury it in the ground before watering it in the containers. Sugarcane requires more water, so keep providing it.

When your plants start to grow after about a month, you can add compost or liquid nutrients. You can also use cow dung, Jeevamrut, or earthworm manure for this.

The rules should provide nutrition to sugarcane plants. As a result, continue to apply organic manure or organic liquid manure once a week.

Take care to safeguard the plants from pests and disease from the start. Neem oil can be sprinkled on occasion.

The length of time it takes for sugarcane to grow well is also determined by the type of sugarcane you plant. So be patient and continue to look after your plants.

Your sugarcane crop will be ready in nine to ten months, and you will be able to harvest it.

Sugarcane can be grown in this manner anywhere in your home's terrace, or balcony. Always bare in mind that the location does have plenty of fresh air and sunlight, as well as a decent water arrangement.

So what are you waiting for? Get sugarcane from the store and try this procedure immediately. Do you realise that your hard work pays off, and you'll be able to taste your homegrown sugarcane next season?
