Florida Sugarcane Cutting/Budss Ready For Planting 3, 6 or 10 pieces per order : Or buy a plant ready to go. Each cutting/bud section is 2”-6” and has at least one node/bud and/or beginning roots. Each cutting/bud can grow up to 12 feet tall upon maturity. A plant is already rooted and usually has leaves and/or buds already sprouted above ground. Most of the plants are already 4-6 weeks or older and 5"-12". We may trim some of the leaves for shipping. Sugarcane is easily propagated for more more sugarcane plants in the future.

You order it we harvest it. We do not harvest until the order is placed. We harvest and ship on certain days of the week to ensure the best results. PLEASE NOTE: We harvest and ship our cuttings to order. You may receive a cutting with more than one bud. Each bud equals one plant/stalk. If you order 3 cuttings/buds, you will receive at least 3 buds not necessarily 3 separate pieces.The immature ratoons are very often green, but as you plant them and they mature they grow into the thick, stalks you see in the pictures. We do sometimes, depending on the season send rooted cuttings. Our plants are grown here on our small farm. We naturally fertilize them from our own farm and with supplemental nitrogen.
Planting Instructions: Bury the ratoon/cutting laying down about 3" below surface of soil. If buying a plant or if the cutting already has a root or bud plant with the bud or leaves facing up and roots about 3" below the soil. Water at least 3-4 times a week. If you receive a rooted cutting plant with the root down and/or bud up. Sugarcane likes a nitrogen rich soil. If your soil does not have much nitrogen, we recommend using a nitrogen supplement fertilizer. YouTube videos can also be very helpful when planing and harvesting. We do not make any guarantees regarding planting or growing of sugarcane due to climates, soil and planting techniques. We do our best to try to help you in the process and are always available if you have questions.
