In addition to treating abdominal disorders, fevers, headaches and bronchitis, this plant is also considered a diuretic, expectorant, blood purifier, laxative, anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory.
How to sow and care for Blue Morning Glory Seeds
You can start sowing Blue Morning Glory seeds indoors four to six weeks before the last frost date, but it is not necessary. You can also plant them directly outdoors. The sterilization process will accelerate the germination of water spinach seeds, which are extremely tough. You can rub them between two pieces of coarse sandpaper for a few seconds and then soak them overnight. Spread the seeds about a few inches apart and about 1/4 inch deep. Seeds need to be watered well after germination and maintained in a moist environment.
The best soil for growing water spinach is moist but well-drained soil. You can always fix the soil later if the vine seems difficult. It helps if you water in the morning about 1 inch per week and cover the roots with mulch to maintain moisture. You can slow down your watering schedule once the plant is established (and into winter) so it needs less water as it grows. Although sturdy, water spinach can live in both cold and hot temperatures.
