Sow Jupiter's Beard seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost, or direct sow outdoors in spring. Plant seeds 1/8-inch deep in well-draining soil. Maintain a temperature of 65-75°F for optimal germination, which takes 14-21 days. When seedlings have developed two true leaves, transplant them outdoors after the risk of frost has passed, spacing them 12-18 inches apart. Jupiter's Beard prefers full sun to light shade and adapts well to various soil conditions, including poor or rocky soil. Water regularly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings.
