Guide to Grow & Care Monk Fruit in Your Garden
How Can I Germinate Monk Fruit Seeds?
Soak the seeds in warm water for 24-48 hours to help soften the hard outer shell and speed up germination. After soaking, remove the seeds from the water and pat them dry with a paper towel. Fill a small pot or container with a well-draining potting mix, leaving about an inch of space at the top. Plant the seeds about half an inch deep into the soil, ensuring they are evenly spaced apart. Water the soil until it is moist but not soggy. Cover the pot with plastic wrap or a clear lid to create a humid environment and promote germination. Place the pot in a warm location with plenty of indirect sunlight. Check the soil moisture regularly and water as needed to keep it consistently moist. Germination can take several weeks to a few months, so be patient and moisten the soil.
How Can I Care for The Monk Fruit Plant?
Monk fruit plants prefer consistently moist soil but avoid overwatering as this can lead to root rot. Water the plant regularly, especially during hot and dry periods. You can check the soil's moisture level by sticking your finger into the soil about an inch deep. If it feels dry, it's time to water. Monk fruit plants need plenty of sunlight to thrive. Please place them in a location with full or partial sun exposure for at least six hours daily. If you live in a hot environment, provide some shade during the hottest part of the day. Use a balanced fertilizer to feed the plant every few weeks during the growing season.
