How To Grow Cauliflower In Pots At Home

When you’re considering growing your cauliflower indoors, there are a few things that you will need to keep in mind. We have outlined the important points below.

Cauliflower Temperature

Cauliflower grows best in moderate climates and is a cold season crop. The ideal temperature is between 10-30 degrees Celsius. When cauliflower is almost fully grown, the ideal temperature ranges from 15-20C.

This is why most gardeners choose to plant their cauliflower crop in the fall, having it set through the winter and mature in the summer.

As you will be growing your cauliflower indoors, the room temperature should be kept steady above 10 degrees.

Cauliflower Pot Size

When it comes to choosing your pot you will need one that is at least 12 inches deep and 10 inches in diameter to fully accommodate your plant.

Another popular idea is to use a large storage bin and drill holes in the bottom. You should be able to grow two or three plants. A barrel will work well for this too.

Cauliflower Soil PH

Soil is always a consideration but the good news is that Cauliflower isn’t picky or tricky. All you need is a decent, moist potting soil. You can add in a bit of clay soil too. Ideally, the pH level should be around 6.5-6.8.

Since cauliflower grows best in moist soil, you want something that’s going to hold moisture for long periods.

Cauliflower Watering Tips

Your Cauliflower will require regular watering, especially if you’re growing it indoors while your heaters are on.

Be sure not to overwater your plants.

A good rule of thumb is to stick your finger into the soil about an inch or two deep. If it feels dry, it’s time to grab your watering can.

Harvesting Your Cauliflower

Provided that you take good care of your Cauliflower Plant, it will be ready to harvest in 3-4 months after starting it from seed.

When the head of the cauliflower is fully developed and around 6-12 inches in diameter (depending on the variety), it’s ready to be blanched.

Blanching is a special process where you’ll tie the leaves of the cauliflower over the head for about 7 days. This allows the plant to get nice and tender, and it also assists it to fully develop its flavor.
