Due to the continuing coronavirus pandemic in India, many people have lost their jobs. Not only that, but companies and businesses have also experienced significant losses. People are looking for new business chances in such a situation, thus in this post, we will tell you about a business that is really simple to start and will pay well.

Flowers are always in demand. Therefore, if you start cultivation of flowers then it will surely provide you good income.

How to start your own Flower Business?

Here’s how you can start your own business in this Corona period;

You can make a lot of money cultivating Rajnigandha (Tuberose) flowers. These are lovely white scented flowers that can make you thousands of dollars if you cultivate them. Tuberose is a perennial plant that blooms at night.

Tuberose flowers may be grown on an acre of land and yield roughly 1 lakh sticks of tuberose flowers. You can also sell these flowers at local flower fairs. You can also sell these flowers at wedding venues, large temples, flower shops, and similar establishments.

Depending upon the demand and supply of tuberose flowers, you can earn Rs. 2 to Rs. 6 per flower. In this way, you can earn Rs. 2 to Rs. 6 lakh by cultivation on an acre of land.  

How to Grow Rajnigandha? 

  • Choose a location where the soil drains properly to cultivate tuberose blossoms. Applying cow dung fertilizer or organic fertilizer to the ground will improve soil fertility and drainage. Peat moss, compost, crushed bark, and decomposed manure can also be used.

  • Tuberose will not flourish in damp soil, so make sure the soil is well-drained.

  • Choose a spot where they'll get enough of the sun. In warmer climates, modest shade is also acceptable.

  • Tuberose bulbs, bulbets, and seeds can all be used to grow tuberose. Bulb propagation is the most prevalent method for commercial propagation. To increase yield and quality, choose high-quality tuberose bulbs.

  • By rubbing off the loose scales and removing the lengthy roots, bulbs are separated from clusters.

  • The spacing distance varies depending on the soil and weather conditions. In general, 2020 cm is good spacing.

  • After planting, proper irrigation is required to settle the soil around bulbs. Root and top growth will form in a week or two. And regular watering (deep watering once a week) and fertilizer application are a must, as tuberose are heavy feeders.

Tuberose plants bloom around 90 to 120 days after planting. And you can cut the flower stems for bouquet decoration and selling purposes. And this will also help the plant to produce new flower spikes.  

Tuberose can be cultivated from April to September. And the best thing about these flowers is, once they are planted, can flower for about 3 years. So you don’t need to sow it every year, you only need to pluck flowers again and again. 

And tuberose neither faces any major disease nor pests. And demand for this flower is throughout the year.  

Tuberose flowers are mostly grown in Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and West Bengal.
