Introduction: How to Sprout Pomelo-Plants
Hello dear fellow-gardeners!
Today I want to tell you about a project I started in Winter.
Pomelos are some of my favourite fruit, but they grow in Asia and are not so easy to get over here in Austria.
So I decided to try and grow my own plants from some seeds.
Step 1: What You Will Need
To sprout a pomelo-seed, you will need a suitable seed, like the ones in the picture.
Most seeds in Pomelos today are too small to sprout.
Then you will need a pot with soil and a place to put it.
Step 2: Sprout It
To sprout a seed you will need to put it in your soil and water it.
And after that, put it somewhere and forget about it completely.
Sounds wrong? Well, that's how you sprout them. Really.
Step 3: Watch It Grow
You may look after your seed once in a while, but do not water it again, until you can see a sprout.
Once your sprout exists, water it as you see fit. It doesn't need a lot of water, but it also grows very slowly.
I don't know if it will ever bear fruit, here in Europe, but I will try to get it to do so. This might take some years, though...
Have fun with your Pomelo-Plant!
