Location: Moringa plant needs at least 6 to 7 hours of direct sunlight for its trunk to develop. Sow the seed in a spot that is directly accessible to sunlight every day.
Temperature: Ideal germination temperature for moringa seed is between 21 to 35 degrees Celsius (70 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit)
Soil: The soil for sowing moringa seeds should be drained with organic manure. Clay soil is not recommended for sowing moringa seeds.
Watering: Moringa plants are drought resistant however the soil should be evenly moist as long as the woody trunks do not take shape. After that, watering can be need-based.
How to Harvest
Moringa pods should be harvested when they can be snapped easily. The yield is usually low during the first year of planting but gradually increases with each year. In North India, moringa pods are harvested in the summer season however in South India, they are harvested twice a year.
If the harvesting is for oil extraction, allow the pods to dry and turn brown on the tree before plucking it.
