this might be a silly question, but ... I'd like to try my luck planting a moringa tree. It says to use loamy soil. Would Mel's mix qualify as that?

Hi, Christinetarifa! The Moringa Tree would probably grow in Mel's Mix, but the major problem I would expect would be the depth of it. Planting instructions for the Moringa Tree says to prepare a hole 3' wide by 3' deep. The roots would then grow out and down into the surrounding soil.

What type of soil do you have where you live?

The technical definition for loam is soil that contains:

  • less than 52% sand,
  • 28-50 % silt, and
  • 7-27% clay

I've read some sources that claim it's possible to grow Moringa in containers. The main problem seems to be to get them to sprout. I've soaked for 24 hrs and then put several seeds each in a) starter soil, b) damp paper towel in zip lock bag and c) in ziplock bag without paper towel and placed in a dark drawer. The latter was in the instructions that came with my seeds. 1 week in nothing has sprouted but it says it can take 14 days ...

I saw this video on Growing Your Greens Youtube channel, and found it full of interesting tips on growing Moringa.

Baker Creek seeds offers a dwarf variety that can be grown in a pot, if you are worried about soil conditions. Here's a link:
