I have four growing beautifully. They're one of the very few potted plants that have survived the two heat waves.

grannyclampett!!! Its so good to see you posting! You've been missed!

We are still growing moringa though last year was a bust with the hot weather. We plan to make another attempt this year and will probably start some seeds soon.

Moringa grows in all the small villages here on the Big Island of
Hawaii. Seems like all the old houses have a tree.

The leaves have a nice spicy flavor and taste good in Chilli.

Hi there Max, if you're still around...

We have ONE moringa sprout that survived (of 2..squirrels ate the sprout of one).

The one surviving in a peat pot with compost dirt, is about 4 inches now, with a few tiny leaves on top...do we plant it in a bigger pot up to it's neck or just plant it as is and let it go "gangly"? Thanks if you have time to reply...

This link might help. I don't think I would plant it any deeper than it is right now but I would give it a good deep pot to grow its tap root in. I'll make sure Max see's this thread. He may have some suggestions.

I never had any luck with them. They all died by the second year. I don't know if its a zone thing or what. I'm sorry I'm not more help.
