Hi, i planted seeds of moringa oleifera at 6 meters of distance to a huarango tree.
Huarango trees are trees from peruvian dry deserts forests, they have evolved to catch humidity from the enviroment and make humidity avaliable for other trees.
Moringa is a tree that needs a lot of water and what i would like to do is that the huarango can generate all the water that the moringa tree needs and not depend on human irrigation.
Do you think this is possible?
Do you think the distance between moringa and huarango is too short or too long for this objective? Any hint?
How did your Moringa trees do? Once established Moringa trees are drought tolerant. In order for normal growth and leaf production the tree should get at least 10in of rain a year. You will likely find that once your Moringa tree is established you don't need to water it. That being said, it will produce a lot more leaves and seed pods if you give it more water. The huarango tree sounds fascinating. I'll have to look that up.
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
