Introduction: How to Grow a Pear Tree
For people living in the cities perhaps nature is all we can grow in our balcony.
So lets grow some pear trees!
What we need to begin with:
1 plastic cup
1 cup mold
Later on (about 3 months) we will need a bigger pot ;)
We eat the pear and keep the seeds
We place the seeds in the plastic cup, we fill the cup with water and put the in the fridge about a week. This
way we seperate the bad seeds from the good. Also the seeds now think that the winter is
gone and they can grow now.
We keep 4 seed of those who stayed down. in the surface are the dead seeds
We empty the water and fill the cup with mold softly and water it like in the picture no2
We use the toothpicks to push about 1.5 - 2 cm the 4 seeds in the cup and like in the photo we live the toothpicks like markers there!
Tip : I positioned the plastic cup next to a sunny window and placed above a plastic bottle to act like a glasshouse! it worked i think
When the mold is getting dry add water
If all goes well (like for me) in three months pic7 cut the plastic cup (when the mold is dry) seperate the roots gently
and plant each pear tree in a differnet and bigger pot pic8
Pear tree drop the leaves in the winter but u keep watering the mold in the big pot and by spring u will get pic 10
Be patient and u ll have pears in your balcony...
