📚 Indian Thistle Care Guide

Indian Thistle details
💧️ Water - Medium Water OR High Water
Moderate Water Needs
Indian Thistle requires a moderate amount of water. You will want to allow the top few inches of soil dry in between waterings. As a general rule of thumb, depending on where you have planted and how much light your Indian Thistle receives, you may need to water once a week.

Growing Indoors
If you are growing indoors or in a container, you can always check the moisture of the soil by using your thum or finger. Stick it in the soil -- if it is dry, then you will likely want to water your Indian Thistle.

Pot selection is also important to keep your Indian Thistle from getting too wet. It is important to select a pot with plenty of drainage holes as this will allow excess water to train out of the pot rather than to just sit on the bottom. Drainage holes also allow air to get into the soil from the bottom of the pot. Using a terracotta pot or another type of pot made of a permeable material can also help keepIndian Thistle from getting too wet. Terracotta and other similar materials allow water to wick away from the soil faster than they would in a plastic pot.

Growing Outdoors
If you are growing Indian Thistle outdoors, the amount of light your plant is receiving is key to determining how often to water your plant. Plants that require moderate water, generally do best if they can get some respite from the sun during the day as it can dry out the soil fairly quickly. If you have planted in a sunny area, you will likely need to water this plant more often than if it is planted in a shady area. The type of soil you plant in is also important. Sandy and loamy soils tend to dry out much quicker. You can always amend soil with organic material such as peat moss or compost to encourage moisture retention.

High Water Needs
Indian Thistle can tolerate and grow in low light and shady areas which means it prefers about 2 hours of diffused natural light. Remember, low light does not mean NO light! All plants need light to survive, some more than others.
When plants like Indian Thistle grow in low light or shady areas, you will want to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight unless direct sun is specified as a light need for the plant. In which case it can tolerate a wide range of low light to direct sun conditions and is very forgiving!
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Indian Thistle in a shady area.Indian Thistle is a great option for shade gardens or underneath trees or near fence lines that provide cover from bright sunlight.
If growing indoors, you can grow this type of plant in a lot of different areas of your house. The only thing to keep in mind is that you will want to avoid direct sunlight (unless specified) for Indian Thistle. This means if you are growing near a South-facing window, make sure to place it a few feet away from the window. South-facing windows receive the most amount of bright, indirect and direct light a day. Eastern-facing windows receive light in the morning and afternoon shade, while West-facing windows receive sun in the afternoon. North-facing windows receive the least amount of light and would be great candidates for where to place you Indian Thistle.
