Planting Moringa Oliefera (Malunggay). How To Grow Moringa Plants From Seeds indoors. Living in a cold place, planting in pots.
I just want to share with you my second attempt at planting Moringa Oliefera, also known as Malunggay in the Philippines. Growing up, we ate a lot of malunggay. I would say almost every day we were eating malunggay. I thought I should try to plant malunggay in the pots, since living in Canada that is my only option. I tried to plant Moringa last year but none of them grew. So this time I had my husband’s assistance in planting the seeds. We had 8 out of 10 that we were able to transplant. Unfortunately, 2 plants died. We gave away 2 and we kept 4 plants. If you are wondering where I got the seeds from I bought the seeds from Amazon.
How To Grow Moringa Plants From Seeds:
Step 1: We used a wet paper towel to make the seeds sprout. It took at least a week before the seeds started to open. Since Canada has low humidity, we had to check the seeds twice a day for its wetness. The paper towel had to be moist. We add enough water to keep the paper towel moist if it felt dry which quiet often.
Step 2: We transplanted the seeds two weeks later in a very large planting pot. First, we watered the soil, and then we planted the seeds about one inch under the soil.
Step 3: Water the plants as needed. It took another week for the seeds to come out from underneath the soil. Please be careful not to water the plant too much.
