Potting up Mango from seed.

My mango seed #2 is looking good. I know most people will wait until it starts rooting and growing leaves before putting it in soil but I have had bad success transferring sprouting seeds in that way so I decided to pot it up already.

Also there is some debate as to which direction to orient the seed in the dirt. Some say flat, some say rounded end down. I figured in the “wild” the seed will always lay flat so I went with flat.

Here he is! Last time I will see the seed!

Hopefully in a few weeks I will see a shoot rising from the soil. I used organic Happy Frog potting mix.

    I just found your site this morning after having fresh fruit for breakfast. You’ve shown exciting potential for my recently-(this morning!)consumed mango. I’ve scrapped the pulp off. It must be a ‘Kent’. All of that aside, how is your mango doing?

      It didn’t make it 😦 but I will try again! Maybe the warmer weather will help now 🙂

        Winci, Phooey! Well, I’ll try to plant mine and see if it develops. I wish you success in your next mango seed attempt. Thank you for your response and your great instructions!
