Moringa Tree Planting Instructions

Learn How To Plant Moringa Seeds, Seedlings, Cuttings and Mature Moringa Trees

Planting a Moringa Cutting

Moringa cuttings without roots can be grown into a whole new tree.

Use cuttings from a main stem, not branches. Only use cuttings with bark, at least 1″ in diameter.

Roots will form from the bark below the soil.

Plant them in pots or in the ground any of the 3 ways.

They need to stay moist and in the shade until roots have formed.

Roots usually form best in the summer months, with in a few weeks from planting.

For better results, strip the side branches and keep the top sprout on the top, submerge bottom in soil at least 6″.

Planting Moringa Seeds

Watch this video to learn how to plant seeds directly into a biodegradable pellet or read on.

Mix some biostimulant with water in a 1:32 ratio. Use that mixture and dunk the peat pellets in it until they are completely saturated.

When the peat pellets are completely expanded open the top a little and take a couple pinches of the peat out of the pellet.

Then grab your perlite and put a couple pinches of that and put it in the peat pellet. Massage the the peat pellet with the perlite inside until it’s mixed in.

At this time you plant the seed at a depth of twice the seed length. Your seed is now planted!

Some extra tips for you: Make sure the pellets don’t dry out but don’t keep them saturated. The older they get the less water they need. Moringa can root rot. If you’d like to speed up the germination process you can soak the seeds overnight in the biostimulant and water mixture the day before planting.

Planting a Moringa Seedling

Dig a hole 2’ wide by 2’ deep and fill with composted soil and other soil amendments like worm castings, biochar and rock dust to build mineral content.

Then, place the small seedling and root-ball on top of the mounded hole and cover the pellet/roots lightly with more composted soil to create a small mound.

Very Important: Place a thin layer of Oak Mulch on top of the soil to protects the soil and prevents moisture loss. Added nutrient and micro-biome protection.

Keep soil and mulch clear from the area where the bottom stem turns into the root. This is where the tree ‘breathes’. 

Do Not Block or Bury Stem
