Simple Method to Grow Cauliflower: The best time to grow a cauliflower plant is in the winter season, and you can plant its seeds at the beginning of the winter season (October to November).
Prepare a soil mixture: To make soil, take well-drained garden soil(50%), coco peat (25%), and vermicompost (25%). Mix it well and while mixing a soil, remove all small stones and pebbles so that the soil mixture becomes well-drained. The size of the container should be large(12 inches in diameter or more), and make sure a drainage hole in the available bottom of the container. If there is no drainage hole in the container, do it with any garden tool like scissors.
Fill 70% of the soil mixture in the container and spray cauliflower seeds above the soil mixture. After all, pour a 2 to 3-inch layer of soil above the seeds. While spraying the seeds, make sure the seeds are not overlapping and fill water into the container. After that, place this container in the sunlight.
Germination starts from seeds after 7 to 8 days, and small leaves appear from the plants. When plants grow up to 5 to 7 inches, give it organic liquid fertilizer.
When plants grow up to 6 to 7 inches and more, it’s time to transplant every plant in another container or flower pot—at the same time, transplanting a plant use the same soil mixture. After transplanting, give water to the container and place the container in the full sunlight.
Within 30 to 40 days, plant leaves grow up to 10 to 12 inches, and after 50 days, small cauliflowers appear in the plants.
Top 5 Caring Tips
Watering: Don’t overwater, and while giving water in the plant, check soil moisture. If soil is dry, then give water properly. Before germination of seeds, give water when soil is dry, and after germination, grow up to 6 to 7 inches give water after 2 to 3 days. After the transplant, plants grow up to 10 to 12 inches give water after 1 to 2 days.
Temperature: Cauliflower plants need full sunlight before germination and after germination. So place this container where there is full sunlight, like a terrace or balcony, or you may maintain the temperature between 15°C to 25°C. If you place containers at high temperatures (above 35°C ), Leaves sare burned.
Best Fertilizer: Always give organic liquid fertilizer with high nitrogen. After repotting plants, give some fertilizer and after fertilization, fill water appropriately. Always give fertilizer before the growing season.
Pests & Disease: Many small insects like aphids, root bugs, and mites damage leaves(make small holes in the leaves), so spray neem oil or soap water to kill them.
Pruning: Pruning is necessary before the growing season. If you want to prune, the plant removes dead leaves or damaged leaves from the plant and cuts the bottom leaves from the plant.
Harvest Time: Best time to harvest after 90 days from germination. After 90 days, cauliflowers grow up to 5 to 6 inches, depending on verity. After 105 days, the size of cauliflower grows up to 6 to 8 inches. You can harvest them properly with a knife or another garden tool.
