Lablab requires a sunny position. It thrives in a wide range of soils, from poor sandy soils to heavy clays, when drainage is good.
Thanks to its taproot, lablab can extract water from 2 m below the soil surface, which makes it drought hardy and allows it to grow during the dry periods of the year. Lablab tolerates some flooding but does not withstand poor drainage or prolonged waterlogging.
