The time to maturity for Lil Caesar is about 60 days. Sow your seed or plant your transplants in soil that will drain well and in a site that gets full sun.

How to sow: Sow 3- 5 seed into an individual small pot ( 2 inches) with a soilless multi-purpose compost mix, which can then be topped up with extra compost as needed to provide more stability and encourage root growth as the seedling grows. Use food wrap to cover the pot and water well with a fine spray once a day.
