Saccharum officinarum, known as sugar cane, is a large tufted perennial grass that is probably native to Southeast Asia. It grows to 15-20’ tall in tropical/semi-tropical areas, but to 5-8’ tall as an annual in cool climates.It is grown in consistently moist, but well-drained soils in full sun. A heavy feeder, feed weekly during hot sunny days with balanced feed with trace. Avoid too high ‘N’ as this will promote weak stems. It is best grown in a wide container/pot. Fast root growth enables fast shoot growth.
