Growing rice

I've always wanted to grow rice at home and wondered if anyone grew rice in Singapore years ago? Afterall, rice farming is practiced in all the neighbouring countries.

I know it's impossible to grow enough for eating in my little backyard but that didn't stop me from trying. I managed to get hold of some rice grains and promptly sowed some in a container at home. The seeds germinated within days and now I have a tiny pot of rice growing at home. It's a dream come true.

  2. Woah, that's amazing. Didn't know you could grow them at home. Would be interesting to see how much rice this generates!

  4. Wow, I've never known that rice can be planted in container! Btw, are you using rain water or tap water for all your veggies and fruit?

  5. Unfortunately I am using tap water as I haven't found a way to collect enough rain water in my balcony. I have too many plants to water! I love the rainy season in Nov and Dec. I did not have to water at all!
