Curry Leaf Plants (Delivery -Whatsapp Me)
Soil Requirements – When it comes to the curry leaf plant, it will do best in well-drained soil that is mildly acidic. This plant will not typically do well with adapting to other types of soil, so if you need to create a quality mixture, you can add sand or manure to the soil
Light Requirements – This is a plant that will need full sun to thrive, but it must be used to this full exposure before you give it more than six hours of sun a day. This is especially true where the temperatures often reach over 100 degrees because the leaves can get a sunburn.
Temperature Requirements – The curry leaf plant will not do well at all, in temperatures that drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. In general, you’ll want to keep the air in the growing environment around 65 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer.
Watering Requirements – During the spring and the less hot months of the year, this is a plant that will grow well with a once a week watering. However, during the hot summer months, it may require water each and every day to make sure that the soil does not become too dry in the heat. You will also want to reduce the amount of water given to the plant when it is cooler outside because the plant will most likely be dormant. With this plant, you will need to make sure that the roots of the plant do not set in water; this can cause root rot and other issues that will hinder the growth of it.
Feeding Requirements – This plant does not require a lot of fertilizer to grow, so it should be fine to provide it with a little bit of liquid fertilizer once a month or so. The curry leaf plant is one that can lack iron, so you can also add a teaspoon of iron sulfate to the soil once a month as well. This will help boost the growth of the leaves and give your plant better-looking foliage.
Pruning Requirements – Pruning is something that is done to plants to keep them healthy and growing. Typically, it is something that is done once a year. All you need to do is pinch off any dead leaves or branches on the plant, and this is typically done during the spring. If the plant is not doing as well as you’d like, you can do this a few times a year to promote growth.
