Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) commonly known as green or true cardamom hails from tropical India, Nepal and South Asia. It is a sweet aromatic herb not only employed in cooking but also part of traditional medicine and tea. Cardamom has a rich history of use in many countries as part of spice blends, such as masala, and as a crucial ingredient in Scandinavian pastries.

As an understory plant, cardamom prefers humus rich soil, slightly on the acidic side. Cardamom needs to stay moist and does not tolerate drought. In hot, arid regions, provide extra humidity through the leaves. Cardamom may flower 3 years after planting and the rhizomes can live for decades with good care. Move plants indoors at the end of summer in areas with freezing weather.
