Acoro (Acorus)

The plants of the genus Acorus are wonderful, because although they are herbaceous and green in color, they have a very interesting ornamental value. And it is that whether we have a lawn that needs a lot of maintenance, such as a pond or a garden where it rains very regularly, taking care of them is very easy.

In any case, if you do not have experience in growing plants and/ or need to know how to take care of the acoro, I will explain it to you below.

Origin and characteristics

Plants known as acoro are perennial rhizomatous herbaceous plants that belong to the botanical genus Acorus. Its leaves are unifacial, simple, undivided, with parallel venation, and green in color. They can measure from 30 to 60 centimeters depending on the species. The flowers are grouped in an inflorescence formed by a spadix and a long linear spathe. The fruit is a berry with 1-9 seeds.

They grow in the swamps of the northern hemisphere, so they are able to withstand some frosts and humid places better than other plants.

What are their cares?

If you want to have a copy, we recommend you provide the following care:

  • Location: the aquarium must be outdoors, either in full sun or in semi-shade.
  • Land:
    • Pot: universal growing substrate mixed with 30% perlite.
    • Garden: it is indifferent as long as it has good drainage.
  • Irrigation: it must be frequent, since it lives near water courses. The ideal is to keep the soil or substrate always moist, so that if you have it in a pot you can put a plate under it without problems.
  • Subscriber: from the beginning of spring to the end of summer, it can be paid with organic fertilizers once a month so that it has an excellent growth.
  • Multiplication: by seeds in spring.
  • Rusticity: withstands cold and frosts down to -6ºC.
