To ensure that our moringa seedlings are properly cared for, we built a nursery close to our water source for easy watering of our seedlings. We chose this spot because there are bigger trees that protect our nursery from too much water and direct sunlight.
|For seedling container, we use polybags filled with 50% loamy soil and 50% enhancers such as compost, carbonized rice hull, or any organic fertilizer material.|
|The young moringa plants are kept in the nursery for 4-6 weeks before transplanting, or when they are about 30 cm high.|
|In my blog post about choosing moringa seeds, I had a picture of some not so good moringa seeds which we kept for planting next time. We decided to plant them directly on the soil and they still sprouted!|
