Learn something new in planting stems
March 14, 2018 12:12am CST
I'm sure some of you were already aware of me planting and growing moringa for a while. And one of my most failures since I started growing moringa was the stem. It seemed to rot and die at some point and when I pulled it out it's filled with termites. Then while watching related you tube videos about moringa stem growing I saw this video. What catches my attention was the covered the top with plastic. The reason for this he said that once the water entered the top and then goes inside the stem, it slowly dies. Not confirmed if this was true, but I'm going to use this technique and see how it works out. I hope this makes the difference.

Try planting Hummingbird tree or Katuray. It's leaves are edible, you can eat it like Moringga and it's flowers are edible too, You blanch the flowers and use it for salads, mixed it with Pakbet or simmer the leaves and flowers with coconut milk. I love it because it will give you flowers to harvest on a daily basis. You can also eat the pods, When I still garden in the Philippines, I only eat the leaves and flowers. Just like moringga it's packed with nutrition and it's a tree with edible leaves and flowers.
@Letranknight2015 The lettuce I throw it but I will grow some again. I have some seeds here but I am still in need of pots. Lol. Some of my pots are from bottled soda and water. My lemon and calamansi are from natural fruit that I used and they are growing. I will take some pictures later
time and again, our big moringa tree at the back is cut every 2 months. some branches are used to hook the clothes-wire up. then i noticed these 2 big branches of moringa that are standing on the soil are having new growing twigs and fresh and young leaves are sprouting. also we give some branches to our neighbors who ask for moringa leaves.
