Why u want to poison ur cats?" Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) is a perennial tropical plant that needs very specific conditions in order to grow. Cardamom seeds are ground to make a spice for flavoring various dishes. To grow cardamom plants, you must provide consistent warm temperatures and humidity. The ideal place to grow cardamom is in a climate-controlled greenhouse, but you can also grow it in a warm, humid bathroom. Cardamom is extremely cold-tender and cannot tolerate any fluctuations in its environment, making successful growing quite challenging. Cardamom is usually grown from cuttings of parent plants, because the seed pods that are harvested commercially are picked before they mature and won't germinate.

Obtain brown cardamom seeds, not the green seeds or the green pods that are sometimes available. Make sure it is the seeds and not the powder.
Moisten the seed starting mix and place the mix into the container. Sprinkle the seeds on top then add a slight covering of the seed mix over the seeds. Water the container.
Keep soil moist but not too wet. Germination rate is high but have patience - these seeds are VERY slow to germinate and it may e 4-6 weeks (up to two months) before they germinate.
Once the seeds start to germinate, keep them moist and in a warm area. Cardamom is a tropical plant and will not survive outside in the winter in most parts of the united states (although they would enjoy the hottest parts of the summer outside. It is a rainforest plant so in dry conditions, mist regularly

Have PATIENCE when germinating - it is very slow

Do not allow plants to freeze - bring inside when temperatures dip to under 60
