Grows quite pretty in a glass jar on the windowsill. Peanuts grow underground on stalks that grow from the flowers.ย

Grow your own peanuts? That’s possible! This annual plant can be easily cultivated on e.g. the windowsill and starts producing peanuts after a couple of months. The yellow flowers bloom only half a day and grow stalks that keep getting longer after pollination (normally by insects; in a room, you can use a brush). At any given time, they are so long that they can reach the ground and bore into it. Peanuts are namely formed underground and grow on the end of these stems. To let the peanuts grow well, you should keep the ground a bit drier, 6 weeks after flowering. You can water the plant occasionally, but only marginally. Then, the peanuts need about one month to grow before you can remove them out of the ground. Bon appetit!

Veel pinda's opgekomen. Ik heb ze in doorzichtige fauna boxen gedaan, zodat je de ontwikkeling van de pinda's kon zien. Ook leuk voor kinderen! Redelijk wat pinda's per plant geoogst.

De pinda's kiemen ontzettend snel, zowel in vochtige stekgrond als in vochtig keukenpapier. Eรฉntje had na drie dagen een halve cm dikke wortel van 6cm lang! Deze mogen volgens mij wel enkele cm's diep gezaaid worden, ze duwen zichzelf naar boven.

Mijn pinda's gezaaid in januari in een klein verwarmd kasje met een grond temperatuur van 24C. De pinda's kiemden al naar twee dagen!
