Type of Plant:

Asafoetida is well-suited for outdoor cultivation, thriving in warm and dry climates. However, it can also be grown in containers, making it suitable for cultivation on patios or balconies. This herb requires well-draining soil and plenty of sunlight to flourish. With the right conditions, you can enjoy a steady supply of fresh Asafoetida leaves for your culinary creations.

Ensure the plant receives plenty of sunlight, ideally 6-8 hours a day. Regular watering is essential, but be cautious not to overwater, as Asafoetida prefers slightly dry conditions. Pruning can be done to encourage bushier growth and enhance leaf production.
