Planting:

  • Take a medium-sized seedling tray with the moist coco-peat medium.
  • Put 2-3 seeds on the surface of the medium & push them inside the medium lightly
  • Cover the seed tray with paper or cloth for the first 2-3 days to encourage faster seed germination.

  • If seedbeds are made outdoors, protect them from heavy rain or direct sunlight. With a temporary roof. Water it in the form of a light shower using a watering can.

  • Water your potted Noolkol plant every alternate day.

  • You can also make provision for watering by watering by drip irrigation system for your raised beds. Avoid overwatering.
  • Add good quality organic manure in the soil with a 2:1 ratio before transplanting the seedling. Organic fertilizer can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, compost, or Vermicompost.
