Hey Y'all!

Happy Lunar New Year to everyone!

I germinated the contents from my Clipper brand chamomile teabag about a month back and the chamomile is taking off wonderfully with minimum fuss and care.

Today I spotted a bud and I'm thrilled to bits! I'm hoping this be Roman Chamomile bcos of the sweet apple like scented leaves. Leaves look typical to that of the RC however my leaves smell like nothing.

Just wondering if anyone has grown German Chamomile or have any pictures to share and can tell me if the leaves of the GC are scented or not. Tried googling but I don't really trust what I'm looking at. Haha

Thanks and Cheers!

Happy lunar new year.

You mean you use the flowers in the tea bags and the plants germinated? Interesting! Would be good even if it's not german, ya?

Hi GF!

Yes I just tore open an unused teabag and poured whatever was in there into compost and three days later I saw tiny leaves. I guess it's good if I can harvest the flowers eventually to make tea. Just being a bit fussy over the scent of the leaves. I recall having a RC plant and in the morning, my corridor smelt so sweet. Wonderful!

Cheers!

OK. Sounds like a new project. I'm going to try it too.

Let me know how yours turn out. I read that some people use chamomile to replace grass.

Bought Clipper brand tea from Cold Storage

Cheers

Interesting. I bought the Chamonile from the known you brand. Germinated already. Should have tried your method first.

How's yours coming along? Has it flowered and are the leaves scented?

Cheers

It's just a few mm tall, so I don't think I can smell it yet.

Oh ok. Are you growing it using hydroponics?
