Step 1: Get Materials
Materials You Will Need:
Six Inch Pot
Step 2: Place Rocks/Gravel at the Bottom of the Pot
Place your rocks at the borrom of the pot. This will keep all the water from leaving the pot before the plants can soak it it up.
Step 3: Put Dirt in Pot
Now it is time to fill the pot up with dirt. Don't fill it completely up because we still have to put the seedling in.
Step 4: Plant Seedlings
Now we plant the seedings. If you have seedlings that come in dirt like I do, keep them in that dirt. Just dig a smal hole big enough to place them in then cover them in dirt (make sure leaves and stme are still above the ground though)
Step 5: Pre-water
Don't forget to put this dish under the pot so excess water doesn't drain out all over your furniture!
Step 6: Water Plants
This is a super important step. Papayas need above average watering. Make sure to water everyday and give them a lot of the water. It is nearly impossible to drown a papaya.
Step 7: Sunlight
Papayas need a lot of sunlight. Put them in the sunniest place in or outside your house. The picture does not look that sunny, but that is because it was cloudy when the photos were taken.
