How To Grow Bonsai Mango Trees From Seeds – Bonsai dirty little secrets Part 10


Hello everyone over the years I have worked with growing mango trees from seeds and the first set of trees there’s nine videos in the series and it ended in disaster. I have recently started growing again from seeds so if you are interested in growing mango trees from seeds then stay tuned. Hey it’s me Iqbal Khan.

This is what the seed looks like is covered in an outer coating which basically, this pulp has to be removed using this steel wire under a running tap water so I’ve already done that with these seeds that you see here. The reason for tidying up the seed with the steel wire is that afterwards the next phase is to gently use a serrated knife and cut the outer coating and it then becomes easier to remove the seed so I will put this away and we’ll work with the ones that I’ve already cleaned up so here’s here’s one that I did earlier and as you can see it comes off quite easily. This is proving to be very reluctant to open up and this is why it’s important to remove all the slippery stuff because when you start to use a knife you don’t want it to slip and cut yourself so you have to be extremely careful if you’re doing, if you decide to do this at home and this is another one that I cleaned up earlier and there we are it’s come out the seed and it’s starting to pop there it is I’ll put this to one side and continue with another one that’s the third of the mangoes and these three the ones that I’ve just worked on are mangoes from Israel and they’re quite expensive so there are three of those and then the next two are the Alphonso, the Indian mangoes I’ve prepared six seeds and these three larger ones are from the mangoes from Israel these three smaller ones are from the Indian mangoes these are the Alphonso Indian mangoes and here I have the Box in which these mangoes came and as you can see fresh delicious juicy Alphonso, they really are and they are one of the best mangoes around and I really do like them. Anyway so we move on to start potting these up and for that purpose I have prepared six pots also I’ve prepared a mix for potting them up and I’ve used a third a third a third a third of horticultural sand and a third of horticultural grit and a third of John Inness number one potting compost. I have also marked the pots as to the Israeli ones and they differentiate them otherwise I’ll be in trouble. So I’m going to start popping these in the sand grit and John Innes number one compost mix and the plane is here bang on cue. I’ve prepared six of these pots that I’ve also marked them where with the Israeli and date and the other three as Alphonso and the date, so I’m going to start popping these in, that’s the first one in, will just leave the top little bit out to help it on its way and will shortly water it thoroughly and probably top up a little bit more soil cover it up completely. That’s that one done, that’s the second one so I’ll pop the seed in and top up a little bit more soil to cover it all up, there we go that should do and that’s the third of the Israeli mangos being popped in. That should do so that’s the three Israeli ones done. Right this is the first of the Alfonso’s and the seeds were not too big so it’s very nicely covered up I’m now going to give them a thorough soaking. Go around a couple of times perhaps more than couple of times and just make sure that they’re thoroughly soaked. That should do and let the water drain and we are done. That was another batch of Indian and Israeli mango trees and I am hoping that these will succeed. I have planted some more earlier and will do an update little later. Thanks for watching, This is Iqbal Khan for mikbonsai until the next time. And now for the afterthought. Did you know that Kinder Surprise is German for unwanted pregnancy. You dig !
