these are the two mango plants I have grown from seeds, starting at the end of September, simply by following the instructions I had found on different websites.
This is all you need to grow a mango plant:
• a ripe mango
• a pot
Cut the Mango flesh away to find the seed husk underneath.
Carefully break the husk open with a knife.
Inside you will find a large bean-shaped mango seed.
Plant the seed into a pot of soil, covering it carefully with a layer of soil
Then cover the pot with cling film and leave to rest in a warm bright place, like a windowledge
After circa two weeks, seedlings will appear
Initially with leaves that are quite pale
and for a few weeks the leaves will hang downwards from the stem. This is normal.
Another two weeks and the seedlings gain strength, looking green and shiny:
I hope you try this for yourself at home.
Happy planting! : )
