Rice is an annual plant that is a great plant to grow yourself. For the past 10.000-15.000 years rice has been cultivated in Asia, at the moment rice is the most important food source for a large part of the world population. China is currently the biggest producer and consumer of rice, while Thailand exports the most rice. The infinite rice fields, the sawa's, are known to a lot of people due to the flooded rice terraces. The rice is grown in a layer of water to reduce the amount of weeds growing in the crop, therefore it is not required to grow rice in a layer of water if you grow it yourself. Do give the plants a humid, sunny spot indoors or in a greenhouse.

Sowing description:
Sow the seeds in spring on top of a flat layer of moist soil, don't cover the seeds with a layer of soil. Cover the pot with some plastic foil or glass and place the pot in a warm spot. When the rice has reached a height of 10 cm you can report the plants to pots with a closed lid. The soil should be kept wet at all times.

Sowing time:
March - June
