Black sugarcane is an annual plant. It thrives in hot and humid climates Since it takes nearly a year to grow to fullness, plant in early spring/January for a winter harvest by December.
PROPAGATING: This plant is very easily propagated from shoots/rooting branches. Choose branch segments of a freshly cut sugarcane that has intact, undamaged nodes or buds at its branch intersections.
GERMINATING: Place branch segments in water for a couple of days, to tenderise the buds for growth. When nodes are tender they are ready for planting out.
PLANTING OUT: Choose manure-rich soil in direct and strong sunlight. Dig long troughs in the soil about 8 inches deep. Plant your sugarcane branch segments laterally (sleeping position) with their nodes oriented upwards, into these troughs. Cover with earth, and water deeply. The first shoots will emerge from your sugarcane buds in about 2 weeks.
