I like to work on the garden. I have a few tips on how to grow papaya's trees and pineapple. Also, how to trap mouses without making a mess.

Papaya A Tropical Fruit.

A ripe orange papaya to start the process of growing a tree is the key to start the project. Some soil needs to prepare before placing the seeds to grow. Adding water to the spot in the yard under a tree a few days is important to keep the moist on the seeds in order to make them grow. The seeds have a better chance to survive during the rainy season and some sun. After the soil is ready. The ripe papaya needs to be open in half on the long side of the papaya's shape. The seeds come out from the fruit with a spoon. Then, place all seeds on a plate. Open a hole in the moistened soil. Add all the seeds in the hole. Cover the seeds with the loose soil. Leave the seeds on the cover hole. Each day, the moist of the soil need to be measure. Add cold water to keep the soil wet. It is best to plant the seeds at evening time to give them a chance to adjust to the new setting. Some temperatures are over 90 or 100 degrees. One extra day in a cold setting helps the seeds to grow trees.

Papaya Trees Growing After A Few Days.


How To Care For The Papaya Trees.

When the trees come out. A tomato cage needs to go around the bunch of trees. First, the trees show two leaves on each stem. Because they are so small. The trees need the tomato cage to protect them from people walking over them. Also, the cage reminds the grower. Some trees are inside the cage to be water.

Step To Transfer The Small Trees To Spacious Spot.

How To Get The Soil Ready To Grow The Trees.

On small plastic sandwich's bag, six by four inches add half soil inside each bag. With a small bottle add water to the soil inside each bag. Wait a few days until the trees are four inches tall. Then, with a spoon pick a small bunch from the grown without breaking the entire bunch. With the fingers separate the small trees and place them in the plastic bag. Add to the soiled bag no more than four trees. The trees need room to grow their roots.

Papaya Trees Inside The Bags.

The Next Step To Grow The Papaya Trees.

After, the trees are planted inside each bag. Add a small amount of water to each bag. Open a few holes on the bottom of each bag. Then, the bags need to be under the trees. The sun needs to be moderate in order for the trees to grow with some moist. Every day the trees need to have some water. After a few days, the trees will grow. You keep adding a spoon of soil around the trees. When the bag is completely full of soil, and the papaya's trees are taller. It is time to take the bag to another spot in the garden to grow the trees.

How To Prepare The Spot On The Garden.

Any spot is good for the Papaya's trees to grow with half shade and half sun. Water the spot where the hole is going to dig. It makes it easy for the digging. The hole needs have to get big than the soiled bag with the trees. When the hole is ready plant the bag with the trees inside the hole. Cover the hole with soil around the end of the bag. Add some water on top. Every day,t he trees need to be water until the trees are growing normal. Then, the trees need to have water two times a week. The rain season is perfect to grow Papaya 's trees. The trees do not get spoilt by too much water after the trees are about twelve inches tall.

Reason For Not Pulling Each Tree From The Bunch.

Inside the soil where they grow. The small roots of the trees create a braid. Inside the soil. The small trees pull each other. They stimulated their grow. The removal of each tree from the bunch have to be gentle. They feed each other inside the soil. One seed alone it does not grow. The seeds created their own fertilizer.

      Thank you for this helpful advice. I am going to plant papaya (we call them pawpaw) soon in the semi-shaded side of my house. Apparently they are also a termite deterrent.
