Hard prune every Winter, for it's a vigorous grower.  Tilapia love it (boiled, of course)

I slice fresh ginger into slivers. I break the cinnamon stick into pieces.  The rest of the spices, I put in my Magic Bullet to grind for a few secs.  Not to grind into powder, but just enough to break them up to infuse better.  I boil these in the water for 5 minutes.  Turn off the heat, then add the tea to steep for 5 minutes.  I use coconut milk as the lightener.  I don't add sugar.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Banana Harvest Question
« on: July 25, 2020, 11:44:45 AM »
I just leave the bunch on the tree, and cut what bananas I can to ripen faster. 

I cut the flower when the fruit have all sized up, usually giving away to people that eat banana flower

In my opinion, the moringa should've been acclimated to your climate for a week in shade.  Moringa is quite a hardy tree, though.  As long as the tubular tap root (looks like ginger) is fine, then it'll grow

If you want bagged potting mix, I like Dr. Earth potting mixes.  There are various kinds.

If you want to mix your own-
peat moss
perlite
compost
kelp meal
etc.

Rodney, The plant you sent me is really vigorous. Thanks!

No problem.  It grows extremely fast during the summer.  Remember, it goes dormant during the winter. Tell your gardening buddies about me. I gave half of the sale to Feeding America, and am deciding where the other half goes to.

They are quite prolific, and do well with little care on my part.
