This perennial bunching grass is native to India and Southeast Asia. Here in the temperate north, it is often grown in pots that are brought indoors in the winter or as a summer annual. The plant prefers full sun and fast-draining soil. Sow seeds in pots or directly into a well-prepared garden bed. Sow seeds on the surface and press in firmly, and keep evenly moist until germination. Thin or transplant to two feet apart.
