Oca and mashua

Monday, 26 February 2018

If you're growing oca and mashua from tubers saved from last year's crop, don't forget to check the "seed" tubers regularly from now on. If they haven't already started sprouting, they'll probably be doing so soon. When the oca have sprouts showing, move them to a light, cool, frost-free place - just as if you were chitting potatoes. Sprouting mashua are best planted in 4 inch pots in multi-purpose compost, and kept somewhere light and reasonably cool. Don't overwater the mashua - they are notoriously easy to rot.
