a) Growing: To allow for vigorous root growth, soils should be fertile and loose but not allowed to dry out. Mulch can be useful on some soils. Avoid soils that are prone to waterlogging since this can inhibit growth and cause root rot. For this reason kava is often planted on sloping land. Provide shade and protection from the wind. Kava cuttings require moist conditions at the time of planting to develop shoots and roots. The use of sand, timber shavings or compost in the soil can help the soil from becoming too wet.
