How to care for Chamomile

Difficulty

Chamomile is a great choice for beginner plant parents because it is easy to care for!

Water

Chamomile should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Soil

Chamomile loves a well-draining soil. Perlite and vermiculite help with drainage, while coco coir adds organic matter, so a good potting soil mix will have all three. You can improve store-bought soil by adding some perlite to it.

Toxicity

Chamomile is poisonous if ingested. We suggest keeping this plant out of reach if you have children, cats, or dogs in the home.
