A single row of sugarcane can serve as a windbreak or barrier planting that gives you tasty chewing canes all at the same time. When grown in tropical to sub-tropical climate they will multiply quickly. The number of canes will approximately double each preceding growing season as well as becoming thicker each year. Regularly remove dead leaves and weeds from the soil or the growth of the cane stalk can be stunted. Sugarcane also makes a suitable container plant, with the advantage of moving it in if you live in an area where frosts may occur. Mature Sugarcane is harvested by cutting level with the soil. This allows the original roots to regrow at least 2 - 3 more times before new ratoons are required. After harvesting be sure to continue the same watering & care as when the plant was actively growing above ground level.
