The good time is of great importance in northern and western parts of India and in Nepal. Navrati Kalashsthapana Puja involves invoking the mother Goddess in a Pot or Kalash and sowing of seeds (barely etc). 

In Ghatasthapana, a pot or kalash with an image of Goddess Durga is installed in the house on the day. The pot or kalash is filled with water and is covered with cow dung and seeds (like barely or wheat) are sown on the dung. The pot is kept on a sand bed and seeds are sown on this too.

Special pujas are conducted on the pot and water is sprinkled daily. The seeds sprout and reach about 3 or 5 five inches on the tenth day. They are distributed as Prasad on the Vijayadashami day.
