Is it possible growing kava indoors in a nothern climate? Can it be done without growlights and a humidity tent? I really love kava, and it would be interesting caring for my very favorite plant ally at home, I would probably get a peaceful feeling just looking at it :smile:

How northern is northern?.. I've seen it growing outside in New Jersey when the humidity was rather low for weeks and it looked perfectly healthy.

You might be able to keep a small specimen plant going in a container indoors, brought outside in summer... but thats not where it wants to be. This species wants to be outside in a nice tropical patch of rich volcanic soil. Considering the size of a mature plant and the size of roots needed for an effect, if your plan is to grow a plant to maturity and harvest... well A) it would take at least 7 years to get it strong enough, and B) you're gonna need one really wide and deep container to get proper sized roots.

Thanks all. I think I'm going to give it a try this spring. Not for usage, just a nice house plant for the collection  :smirk:
