Are you fed up of seeing the same old plants in your garden or in your house? Are you looking for a new plant to grow? Then why not grow a Kratom plant. Kratom is originally found in warm, tropical parts of the world. This plant is anonymous to most people. But it’s slowly gaining popularity amongst people who love to plant different types of trees as shown in sites like telegraph.co.uk. Many find it hard to grow the Kratom plant from seed. Even people who are experienced in planting trees in greenhouses find it difficult to maintain this plant which they have started growing from the seed.
You should remember that the Kratom seed only remains viable for a very short time. So it’s very important to plant the seed immediately. You can increase your chances of successfully growing a Kratom plant by following these tips
1. Before buying the seed, you need to remember that only fresh Kratom seeds will work. You need to ask the vendors to get the seed to you as fast as possible. Another thing you need to remember is that the seeds are very tiny. You need a lot of those seeds to get a single plant.
2. You need wet, rich and fertile humus soil which drains well. You need to water more often so that the soil remains damp. You should also check if the pot is clogged at the bottom. If it is clogged, there may be a chance of fungus and bugs appearing on the plant. You cant spray the plant with pesticide or fungicide as it may kill the Kratom plant.
3. Direct sunlight is bad for seed germination. Temperature below sixty degrees Fahrenheit will damage your plant within days. But once it grows past the seedling stage, the Kratom plant will be quite sturdy and hard and can withstand any harsh climate.
Keep these factors in mind before planting your own Kratom tree.
