Grow This Sweet Plant at Home!

Ever wish you could grow your own sugar at home? Now, you can!

Sugar Cane (Saccharum officinarum) is a clumping perennial grass with long, green leaves shooting up and out. Thick, jointed stalks reminiscent of bamboo characterize this tropical grass, commonly harvested for its sweet sap and used in commercial sugar and molasses production.

The Sugar Cane's stalks can grow in a range of hues, including yellow, red, dark green, and black, providing an excellent backdrop for the vibrant green foliage. When grown as a perennial, mature plants will flower with feathery bloom spikes.

While you may be able to harvest sugar in the right tropical conditions, this Sugar Cane plant also makes an excellent ornamental grass. It's perfect for patio containers, or as a natural privacy screen or border liner.

And this versatile plant doesn't need much to thrive. It will grow best in conditions close to its native Southeast Asia - hot, humid and sunny. If you live in a cooler area, you can use the Sugar Cane as an annual plant, or overwinter it indoors.

Whether you're looking for a patio plant, a unique privacy screen or a tropical annual, the Sugar Cane is a great choice.

    Sweet like sugar😂

    We have loved this plant! My dogs always try to sneak in and take some of the leafs and stocks… but it’s been an easy grower and my nieces and nephews are so excited to have actual sugar! So excited to try it.

    Sugar Can

    Just purchased the Sugar Cane. Really excited to see how this comes out. Will update post in 6mth. The plant came super healthy. The notes for care on the website were really helpful.

    Sugar Cane

    The sugar cane looked good and i am very happy with the delivery as it was delivered with 1 larger stalk and 4 smaller shoots. It is struggling quite a bit now however, due to i am assuming the recent colder temperatures and now i am down to one stalk. I am keeping it alive at the moment. We will see.

    I ordered the 2-3 ft variety here and it arrived with 2 nice healthy stalks with 3 pups growing from them already. Been a nice grower even in the cooler weather in our mild falls.

    Looks like growing this will be fun

    I had to wait until i saw the plants were going to survive when i planted them because the did not look good a week later. As time went along I was able to see longer leaves and taller growth. Glad I bought sugar cane. I am really trying to get away from the processed sugar. James
