Longevity spinach is a highly-nutritious green edible and is sometimes referred to as a superfood. It is rich in vitamin K, polyphenols, flavonoids, and other valuable nutrients. People often grow it for its medicinal qualities. Longevity spinach can be eaten raw in salads and smoothies, sauteed or steamed like regular spinach, or boiled in soups and stews.
LONGEVITY SPINACH PLANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
- Light: The Longevity spinach requires moderate sunlight to grow. So, it is best to place the plant in partial shade areas. Though it will survive and thrive in heavy direct sunlight, the leaves will have a bitter taste. Also, the overall growth will become stagnant.
- Soil: You need to grow it in loose soil that has plenty of drainages. When this plant is kept in a poor drainage pot, it becomes wet, soft, which results in root rot. Make sure that the soil has enough moisture to facilitate the healthy growth of this plant and avoid dry roots. It is better to grow this plant in soil that has a good pH level. Though it can also grow in boor and dry soil type with full exposure to the sun, its growth will be relatively stagnant.
- Water: You need to water the Longevity spinach from time to time, but it is not necessary to water it daily. While watering, keep in mind not to pour water on the plant and sprinkle it on the soil. During summer, the plant might need regular watering. But, in winter, it is better to reduce the number of times you water the plant. Even if you missed watering the plant for a few days, do not overwater it at once, which might lead to root rot.
- Temperature: The Longevity spinach will maintain healthy growth in warm environments, and it is delicate to frost. During a cold climate, this plant will either slow or stops its growth. Under extremely cold temperatures, the Longevity spinach might become dead. The surrounding temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit is excellent for the fast and healthy growth of this plant. Make sure not to expose this plant to severe hot or cold temperatures.
- Fertilizer: You can add fertilizer to the Longevity spinach quarterly. It does not need any particular kind of fertilizer, so any nitrogen-rich fertilizer is enough, including fish fertilizer and blood meal. Mostly, this plant does need any fertilizer if grown in the soil unless the soil lacks nutrients. You can scatter fertilizer around the plant if it is growing in a pot.
