We’re glad you stopped by to learn how to grow a mango from a seed. You can grow your own plant from a mango you buy at the store. This is a great thing to do with your kids on the weekend.
How To Grow A Mango From Seed
Follow these steps to get a mango seed to sprout and grow:
- Put the seed in a plastic bag with some damp paper towels or tissues.
- After 3 weeks in a warm place, it should grow roots. If this one doesn’t grow roots, you might need to try again with another mango seed.
- Once the roots are strong, put the plant in a container with potting compost. You should put it in the ground about 2 to 3 cm deep (an inch). I put the seed on its flat side because sometimes it’s hard to tell which way is up.
- Then you have to wait! In the next two weeks, it should start to grow.
