About Mulberry: Mulberry is one of the best succulent fruit. Mulberry has different types of verities like Black, Red, Morus alba, Morus nigra, etc. Common verity is Morus nigra, which is easily available in many gardens or homes. The scientific name is Morus, and it belongs to the Moraceae family.
Over time, plants grow up to 30 to 50 feet. Mulberries are native to Northern China or India, and it is widely cultivated in Mexico, Argentina, Turkey, Etc. Leaves are round with a serrated shape and grow up to 3 to 4 inches.
Perfect Way For Plantation: There are two options (seeds or cutting) to plant mulberry at home or garden, but we will talk about plantation using its cutting. The cutting method is simple and easy to care about. Take out 5 to 7 inches cutting from the tree (branches). February is the best time for the plantation.
How to Make Top Quality Soil Potting
- To make a soil mixture, take garden soil (40%), rice hulls (30%), and cocopeat (30%).
- Mix it well and take out a large flower pot (size should be 7 to 10 inches).
- Fill the soil mixture into the flowerpot and push the soil with your hand (remove soil air)
- Spray some water and take out the cutting of mulberry.
- Dig a hole 4 to 5 inches and put the cutting into holes, and fill the soil around the cutting.
- Cover the flowerpot with any polythene or other equipment (humidity maintain around the cutting)
- In a one flowerpot plant, only 5 to 7 cutting only.
- Keep the pot in a place where morning sunlight is well.
An alternative way to making soil potting: Take garden soil (35%), river sand (35%), and any compost (40%). Mix it well and make the soil mixture well-drained. While soil mixing, remove all the small stones and pebbles.
Before Planting: USDA hardiness zone should be 5 to 8. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no holes at the surface, then make 5 to 9 holes (Drainage holes are necessary). Cover the holes with a grenade or stones. Use ceramic flowerpot. Distance between the cutting should be 2 to 3 inches.
Within 5 to 7 days, germination starts from the seeds, and new leaves appear from the cutting. Cover the flower pot until you see 5 to 6 leaves. After that, remove the cover and keep the plants in sunlight.
Transplantation: Transplantation is necessary for each cutting because roots take more space during the growing season. Plant each cutting to a separate flowerpot (for best result, ceramic pot is good). Use the same soil mixture. Place the plants in full sunlight.
Top 4 Caring Tips:
Watering: Before germination, do not give water to the plants, and after germination, gives water properly. Keep moisture in the soil during the summer season or give water after 2 to 3 days. Use a spray water gun.
Temperature: Temperature is important for the best results (15-to-35-degree Celsius). Keep the plants in sunlight for at least 7 to 8 hours during the summer season. Morning sunlight is well for best growth. During winter, keep the plants in full sunlight.
Top fertilizer: Each plant needs fertilizer to grow, and the best fertilizer for the mulberry plant is the cow dung. Give fertilizer after 30 to 45 days after fertilization gives water properly.
Pests & Disease: Many types of insects (cutworms, aphids, slugs) and diseases (root fungus) attack the plants. To kill insects and diseases, spray the medicine on the plant. Read the instructions before spraying.
