My handsome #mango plant . #urbansoulfarmer.tumblr.com
I am trying this for the fifth time this year, and either mice have eaten the sprouts in the mini seed-bank greenhouse, or the pit has filled with mold after sprouting and dies. I get so hopeful every time! What method did you use? Youtube gardeners told me to put in in a wet paper towel for a few days to sprout it, then to stick in in potting soil.
So the last mango I grew - the seed pod kinda split while still in gestation. Now it looks like two mango stalks are growing from one seed. Wonder if these can be split into two separate trees.
The first mango tree is about 1 year old now, and 1.5feet high. Both are doing pretty well right now, but it’s going to be years we get anything. But at least the leaves are gorgeous!
My mango stones have all started sprouting, but when I put them out in the greenhouse a mouse would eat the sprout and the pit would rot. :( I am trying one last time. Yours look gorgeous! I have read that most mango seeds have many embryos.
