Castor Oil Bean Plants - Growing Season
Do any of you have experience with growing Castor Oil Bean (Carmencita or Zanzibarenis). I'll be growing the plants from seed this year for use on my rooftop deck. My question is what is the typical lifespan of this annual? I live in Chicago and plan to start the seeds the first week in April (indoors) and plant in an outside container during the third week in May. I was curious as to when the plant will begin to die off (early, mid, late Sept?). Any help you can offer will be appreciated.
Take care, Pat
