Growing Your Moringa Tree From Seed In 4 Simple Steps
# It is best to plant your Moringa seeds directly where you'd like your tree to grow. The young moringa seedlings are fragile and often struggle when transplanted. Choose an area with light organic or sandy soil that is well draining and not heavy with clay.
# 2 Dig a hole 1 foot (30 cm) square and 1 foot deep. Back-fill the hole with loose soil mixed with compost or manure. Once back filled, plant 3 to 5 seeds 1/2 inch deep.
#3 Keep the soil moist enough so that the top soil is not dry but be careful not to overwater.
#4 When your moringa saplings are four to six inches tall, keep the healthiest sapling in the ground and remove the rest.
