Hi, i planted 2 seeds of moringa one very near the other, i irrigated them for 2 months and it grow 2 plants of moringa ( 10 ctms) . I used to irrigate them each 2 days for having the soil always wet.

Yesterday i went to irrigate my moringas and i realized that one of the plants was gone. It seems the plant was cut because i can still see the root in the soil.

Do anybody have an idea of what happened? In my place there are rats , do you know if rats can eat moringa trees?

Other option is that somebody cut the plant. Any idea?

Yes, I have seen rats and mice eat Moringa. In fact I had one seed send up 5 sprouts, one after the next, as each time a sprout would emerge a mouse would eat it! I couldn't believe how hard the seed was fighting to survive! Moringa is truly an amazing tree! For more info check out my website: www.ahealthyleaf.com

Happy Growing!
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
