Summer is Getting Closer
Greetings and welcome to Grow Moringa Farms in Plant City, Florida. I'm Kendrick Henry, your local USA Moringa Farmer. I'm so happy, summertime is right around the corner. It's just about to be Moringa season and we like to get the Moringa season started by shipping Moringa trees all over the country. We ship 10 Moringa trees inside of a box. You can get a box of Moringa trees shipped to your front door with 10 of these inside. I'm going to show you how we ship them so that way you know that when they arrive to you they'll be safe and healthy. We'd also like to show you how to sprout them so if you get our Starter Kit, you'll be able to Sprout the Grow Moringa way.
Starter Kit Contents
If you order a Starter Kit it actually comes with 10 Moringa trees, but it's not just the trees alone. These trees are going to come with seeds and pellets so that way you could actually start your own Moringa trees as well. It's an amazing feeling to learn how to grow Moringa trees, and I want to teach you how to grow them using the Grow Moringa Method. What I'm going to do is start from the very very beginning of how we get started and what you can do at home when you receive your Starter Kit.
First of all inside your starter kit you're gonna get these peat moss pellets and they come flat, dehydrated and this is made from peat moss and the skin of the outside here is a biodegradable skin made from corn.
Hydrating the Peat Pellet Using BioStimulant
All you do is hydrate it. I've already pre-hydrated one for you to see but what I do is add my famous Moringa BioStimulant we make from Moringa leaves. You can use this on any plants. You get a 4oz bottle of the BioStimulant in the box with your starter kit. The trick is to water from below. We'll take a tray just like this and we'll dunk it in a tub of water and BioStimulant. When you first hydrate the pellets they really don't have any perlite inside, which is why the starter kit comes with a bag of perlite.
Perlite is a ph neutral volcanic mineral. It's actually a glass. It's made from obsidian and it doesn't really have any nutrients but it helps with drainage, especially in these peat moss pellets. When you get your Starter Kit once you're hydrating these pellets you'll want to take a little bit of the peat moss out and then dig out a hole in the center. We've got ourselves a little hole there and we're going to put some perlite in the middle. That perlite is really going to help with drainage. I just kind of mix it in there by kneading the pellet around in my hands. Now she's ready for the seed.
Burring the Seed
You see how nice that is? So we've got these really really nice PKM1 Moringa Oleifera seeds which come inside the starter kit. You get about 10 to 15 seeds in there and 10 pellets inside the starter kit. So you take your seed and you lay it flat so with the wing side up you stick it right in and then you can just kind of swish the peat moss in and around it and i just kind of bury it down in there. Someone asked today how deep do they bury the pellets once they are ready to be planted and you really don't have to bury the pellets very deep, or the tubers very deep. The tuber forms inside the pellet.
The peat pellets tend to dry out pretty quickly so that's why we like to water from below. Because we're having to water consistently and the leaves and stem don't like a lot of water, we water from below. We use the wicking system. We dunk this tray of pellets in a tub so the water/BioStimulant mixture wicks up the pellet and the water doesn't disturb the leaves or stem. This really helps us sprout within 10 days or so. Maybe 5 or 10 days you can see that you'll get a nice sprout. Within about a week or two weeks you'll have a growing seedling with roots trying to pop out of the bottom.
Peace, Love, and Prosperous Growing.
