About Indian Gooseberry (Amla): Amla is one of the best fruits for health. Amla has many benefits, and it is also used as an immunity booster. Amla is also used as a herb in many places—many common names like emblic, myrobalan, Indian gooseberry, and malacca tree. The scientific name of amla is Phyllanthus Emblica, and it comes with the Phyllanthaceae family.
Over time, plants grow up to 3 feet to 20 feet in height (size depends on verity). The plant’s leaves are tiny with a pinnatisect shape and green colour, and the size of leaves is grown up to 2 to 4 inches. Many flowers bloom at a time with a greenish-yellow colour.
How To Plant Seeds At Home: The best way to grow amla at home is by using its seeds. January to March is the best time to sow seeds. But how to let’s read.
Take one amla, which is ripe, and now cut the amla and dry the centre part (keep it in full sunlight). Now break the centre part of amla. After breaking, 4, 5 black seeds will appear (size 6 to 10 mm).
Prepare a Soil Potting & Planting: Indian gooseberry is easy to grow in garden soil, but it takes lots of time to germinate. Take well-drained garden soil (50%) and coco peat (50%) for the best soil mixture. Mix it well and take out the flower pot ( size at least 5 to 6 inches). Fill the soil mixture into the flower pot and take out seeds.
Dig holes 2 to 4 cm long, put the seeds into holes, and cover the seeds with soil mixture. After all, give water properly and cover the flower pot with polythene or other items. Keep the flower pot in a semi-shaded area.
Within 10 to 12 days, germination starts from the seeds and small leaves, and 2 to 3 branches appear from the plants. Remove the polythene after germination and place the plants in sunlight.
Remember: Don’t take raw amla because seeds are not germinating. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available at the surface of the pot or not. If there are no holes then make 6 to 8 holes (holes are necessary). For the best result, use a ceramic flower pot.
Transplantation: When plants grow up to 3 to 4 inches, then it’s time to transplant them separately with a separate flower pot. Take out each plant from the flower pot and while removing out, be aware that the plant’s roots should not be broken. For transplantation, use the same soil potting and take a large flower pot (size at least 10 to 15 inches).
