It’s been 30 days since the last update. Today I’ll share with you germination rates from the 2nd planting as well as plant height and stem diameters as measured on day 27 after planting Moringa oleifera seed.
Through this series you can follow a small scale ‘Intensive Moringa Cultivation’ that was carried out in Poway California. Germination rates, plant height, stem diameters, leaf yield and environmental conditions will be shared to give you as much information as possible. You will have an up close view into what an ‘Intensive Moringa Cultivation’ looks like and the leaf production you can expect under similar environmental conditions. For us, growing moringa in Southern California, moringa growth and therefore leaf yield will be limited by lower than ideal temperatures. This intensive moringa cultivation is being done to gain experience with watering requirements, potential leaf yield, and general knowledge about growing moringa.
Please comment below if you have any comments or questions. If you have ever had experience with an ‘Intensive Moringa Cultivation’ I would love to connect with you so please send me an email.

I am in north texas and have a couple hundred acres here that i am wanting to farm on.
I have cows etc. I have been experimenting also with Growing moringa. My greatest results have been in raised hugelkulture beds. I have several plants that are over 10 feet tall. I am wanting to get to flower ans bean pods. I would love to speak with you at your earlier conveniance. I am doing all of this due to a near death experiance that guided me to move here and start growing organic vegitables. It is really becoming a passion of mine. My gardens here this year have been incredible while all of my friends and aquaintinences gardens were a complete failure. Mostly due to extensive flooding here this year. Moringa likes water but doesnt like a wet foot. So i have been sucessful because of the locations i am planting them. I just ordered 1000 seeds from Florida and will soo be planting in 1 gallon pots to start. The cold weather here i am sure will be an issue this winter. I have read that if you cut the tree very low and cover with straw and mulch they can survive the harsh winter or freeze. My wife and inare care takers for an uncle here that has many health issues and i have been feeding him a lot of moringa, as well as the rest of my family.
