- While planting, take a large flowerpot and seeds should be dried. Plant the seeds 2 inches deep and place the pot in full sunlight.
- After all, give water properly.
- Grafted plants are easily available in online stores and local nurseries, plants cost between 30 to 50+ rupees and grafted plants are easily grown because plants come with fertile soil with compost. After 6 months, you can transplant them in the ground or big pot.
Flowering Time: In summer, flowers start blooming on the tree. Flowers are small and white in colour with small buds. The petals and sepals are smaller and the uppermost petals sprout buds (lots of bud’s sprout). The buds are green in the beginning and turn pale yellow as they mature. The flowers give you a pleasant smell and attract a variety of butterflies.
