A Texas Heirloom, Erlene's Green Cotton has light olive green fibers. Erlene Melancon lives in East Texas, where she has been spinning this green cotton, that was also favored by her grandmother. Cotton's of several colors, like green, blue, yellow, and pink, were used before the civil war and industrialization. Which now favors dye's, over natural coloring. There are a limited amount of packets, so get them while you can!
Plants grow as high as 5 feet, but you'll want to harvest the cotton before the color fades in the sunlight. Harvest soon after the "bolls" have opened. Comes out as a yellow-green color, once spun and washed.
We start cotton in 4" pots in the greenhouse the same time we start tomatoes. Cotton is a heat loving plant and does NOT like cold soil or air temps. Cotton needs a constant 65°F to germinate technically. However, we recommend 70-75°F and that means CONSTANT temps that DO NOT drop below that temp at night. We recommend a heat mat if you do not have constant warm temperatures. Then be patient, cotton can take three weeks to emerge and sometimes longer depending on the temperature. If you live in the deep South where cotton is grown most of these instructions will not apply as your spring nights will be well above 70°F.
Due to state regulations, we cannot ship to California, Georgia and South Carolina
