Site Selection

Spilanthes (toothache cress) is a frost sensitive annual that prefers full sun and soil rich in organic matter. Provide moderate to high moisture during growing season.

Cultivation

Start seed indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds 3-4" apart on the soil surface and press lightly to settle. Seeds germinate best when soil temps are 65-80°F. Seeds will sprout in14-30 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12-18″ apart. Transplant outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. For best results, provide plants with moderate to high amounts of water.

Harvest

Harvest above ground parts while plants are flowering (mid-late summer). Toothache cress is used fresh in tinctures, syrups, salves, etc.

    Beautiful and strange flower that is also useful for medicine (immune stimulant, take at first sign of an illness). When you nibble on a bit of the flower, your mouth will go numb.
