Hi 4 months ago i planted 3 seeds of moringa in my forest garden, at the beginning the plants grown fast, The first 2 months the plants growed like 14 centimetes, but then they stop growing. The last 2 months it seems that the plants have grown nothing, they have the same size as 2 months ago. One month ago it appeared some yellow dots in the leaves and then i added worm castings ( humus) , some leaves with yellow dots fell off and then it grow new green leaves but the plant is not growing.

Do anybody know if this is normal behaivor in moringa? im very surprised how slow this plants grow compared to other plants.


any ideas?

Has it got cooler recently? Moringa doesn't like cold. It will slow growth to almost nothing and even die if temps go below about 15C. Once the tree has survived its first winter, it will be stronger the next winter and its cold tolerance will improve each year but you have to try to protect it from cold for the first year.

Where in the world are you? Its always easier to advise if we know your location and climate. And photos are great too.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
