Vetiver grass

Anyone have any experience with this? I have 30 large plugs coming, some of which I plan to split & pot. Is it safe to plant the others in this heat? I will have to water, for sure, but what about mulch (hay)? Need a fast screen. Any help is appreciated.

RE: Vetiver grass

Vetiver will grow under very hot conditions. Plant in full sunlight, water at planting, and thereafter once a week until well established - you cannot over water!. I would mix some well rotted compost or chicken manure into the planting hole at time of planting. should grow very well. You will find more about vetiver at:

Good luck
