Plant seeds 1/4" deep in well-drained, sandy soil mixed with mulch or organic material and light fertilizer in large pot.
Top with about 1” of mulch.
Do NOT soak seeds or remove hard seed shell or “wings”.
Maintain full sun exposure and warm environment of 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Set pot on black plastic garbage bag to increase heat until seeds sprout.
Water lightly daily until seeds sprout in about 1-2 weeks; do NOT over-water!
Seedlings grow quickly and might reach a height of 15' in one year.
Cut tops of trees to encourage branching at lower levels.
Cultivate by cuttings: use minimum 3/4" diameter branch.
Moringa has drought-resistance, but is NOT cold tolerant. Freezes will cause it to die back.
Edible leaves and flowers! Grows quickly with little maintenance in sandy soil.

Seedlings grown and harvested in same season for northern climates.
Mature seed pods:
The best seeds for cultivation are mature, dark brown in color and have ripened on the tree until the seed pod (drum stick) is brown, crispy and opens easily with slight pressure;
The drumsticks have dried on the tree until harvest and are not edible by humans.
The dry, brown husk of the drumstick makes good mulch after the seeds are removed.
Cut the high limbs low to the ground after you harvest your summer crop.

Limbs used for cuttings to start "living fence".
Growing Moringa from Cuttings:
- Cut the tallest Moringa branches at the base with a chain saw, when the seeds at the top of branch are ready to harvest.
- Typically, a long branch with many mature seed pods will have few leaves. Cutting off these gangly limbs helps to harvest the seeds quickly, and cuts the tree back to a manageable height. The tree quickly sprouts new branches and leaves at the cut line and below.
- Cut the fallen branch into limbs about 36” to 48” long with a chain saw. The best cuttings are from ¾” in diameter up to 4” in diameter: the thicker the width of the cutting or limb, the better the chances of survival. The thicker cuttings make a sturdy tree trunk.
- The thicker limbs remain viable for about a month when stored outside in the shade with some humidity.
- Dig a hole about 16” deep and about 8” wide in well drained soil.
- Sprinkle about 1/4 cup vegetable fertilizer into the hole and mix with the surrounding soil.
- Plant the limb in a hole with about 1/3 of length below grade: a 36” long limb should be planted about 12” deep with 24” above grade.
- Pack the soil firmly around the cutting to keep it straight, adding a little fertilizer just below grade at the top.. I frequently surround the limb with mulch or rocks to keep it straight until roots develop.
- Water frequently, keeping soil moist, but not soggy, for several weeks until small branches begin to sprout. Roots of cuttings grow perpendicular to the cut, around the circumference of the branch. Moringa planted from seeds have a single tap root.
Plant several limb cuttings in a row about 8”-12” apart to make the “living fence”. The trunks will grow together as the tree gets larger. Or, plant them about 10' to12’ apart as a single tree.
