Q25. How do I grow moringa?
Moringa Oleifera is native to the foothills of the Himalayas, India and large regions of tropical and sub-tropical Africa. Moringa trees love sunlight, heat and regular showers. And they love a well-drained, loamy soil free of clay. There are 3 ways you may grow moringa; in containers, field planting, and indoors for harsh climate zones. Field or Yard Growing – Keep in mind your moringa can grow to heights of 20-feet or more and spread 5-feet wide. With that in mind, prepare a location at least 15 feet away from structures in light, well-drained soil in a sunny location. Some partial shade is desirable as well.
Near spring, dig out a hole 12”x12”, backfill & water-in. Take a Moringa Gold seed in your hand and drop it, allowing the wings of the seed to orient itself to its new home naturally. Pick up the seed, and press it about 1-inch into the soil. Cover with about a half-inch of soil, water gently without exposing the seed. Seed germination takes place in about 12 days.
Container Growing – Moringa Oleifera grows a strong and long taproot, so deep, large containers are Desirable. The size of your moringa will be in proportion to the size of the planter you choose. We suggest pots from 5 gallons in size up. The choice is yours. For your container growing we recommend a blend of 60-percent peat moss, 20-percent perlite and 20-percent coco mix, readily available at retailers such as Lowe’s, home depot and garden centers. Again, lots of sun with partial shade is desirable. For the most attractive plants, full, bushy ones rich with leaf, practice ‘pinching-back’ the plant’s naturally aggressive vertical growth. Just regularly pinch off new growth. It’s easy and won’t harm your tree.
Indoor in harsh Climates - Keep in mind what your moringa loves: Warmth, sunlight and moisture. You’ll be using containers here, so the aforementioned guidelines should be followed. Since you’ll be indoors, choose a bright sunny location. You’ll want to keep the humidity around your tree high; for this a large drainage plate will protect your flooring and allow draining water to collect and evaporate, humidifying your plant’s area. Your plant may benefit from grow-lights as well and it will love you for giving it a regular misting.
