How To Prepare Best Soil Potting & Plantation
First of all, take mango pip (seeds). Most peoples sow mango pip into garden soil, but the result is not to become good. Take well-drained garden soil (50%), vermicompost, or cow dung (50%) for making the best soil mixture. Mix it well and take out a large flower pot (size at least 12 to 15 inches).
Fill the soil mixture into a flower pot (80%). Dig holes 4 to 5 inches, put the mango pip into those holes, and cover the pip with soil mixture. After all, pour water into the flower pot and keep the plants in semi-shaded locations.
Before germination, keeps the plants in a semi-shaded area or indoor location. Within 5 to 7 days, germination starts from the pip (seeds), and leaves and branches appear from the plants. As shown in the photo.
Remember: While soil mixing, remove all the small pebbles and stone and make soil mixture granular type or loamy type. For best growth always use clay or ceramic flower pot and make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no drainage holes then make 5 to 8 holes (drainage holes are necessary for each flower pot).
