Q.Can I Transplant My Chia Plant In October?

Zone Mesa, Arizona 85206 | Anonymous added on October 11, 2021 | Answered

I live in Mesa, Arizona. I recently potted an avocado seed in a pot that I had previously grown some chia seeds in. Along with the avocado seed sprouting and growing, a left over chia seed sprouted and began growing as well. The chia seed continued to grow and I eventually transplanted it into its own pot. The chia plant is now 23″ tall. Since it is a spindly plant, I have had to prop it up with a thin stake so that is does not fall over. From reading your article, it appears that I can transplant this chia into my garden outdoors. With this being October, do you think the plant would survive the winter if I transplanted it now? Would it be better to keep the plant indoors and transplant it in the spring? What would you advise? Thanks for your assistance.

According to the article below, they don't survive through winter, but reseed. So, I would not plant it out till next spring. The seeds would survive the winter, but doubtful the plants would.
