Cardamom suckers were planted with the collar region at surface level or 15 or 23 cm below the surface, at 4 fortnightly intervals from June to August in a region where heavy rainfall occurs during June and July. Mortality was least with surface planting and when rainfall was relatively less heavy in the week after planting. The best results were obtained with August planting.
