Start by filling a container with a well-draining soil mix and moistening the soil.
Scatter the seeds over the soil surface and press them lightly into the soil, but do not cover them with soil as they need light to germinate.
Place the container in a warm, sunny location with temperatures between 65 to 75 degrees F (18-24°C) and keep the soil evenly moist by misting it with water as needed.
The seeds should germinate within 7 to 14 days. Choose a sunny or partially shaded location with well-draining soil to transplant your blue light aster plants. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the plant in the hole, and water thoroughly.
CARE FOR ASTER PLANTS AFTER GERMINATION
Care for the blue light aster plants by providing plenty of sunlight. Blue light asters prefer full sun but can tolerate some shade. Water the plants deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between watering to avoid overwatering. Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. When the plants are about 4 to 6 inches tall, transplant them into larger containers or the garden, spacing them about 12-18 inches apart. Blue light asters can grow up to 3 feet tall and make a beautiful addition to any garden, with their blue-violet flowers blooming in late summer to fall.
USES AND HEALTH BENEFITS OF BLUE LIGHT ASTER
Blue light asters have several medicinal properties and are commonly used in traditional herbal medicine. They are known to have anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and diuretic properties and can be used to treat respiratory conditions, urinary tract infections, and menstrual cramps. Additionally, they are used for their aesthetic value in gardens and floral arrangements.
