“Follow Our Traditional Cultivation & Have Healthy Lifestyle”

Brinjal is used in a variety of Indian recipes. Brinjal can be grown in pots in two methods. The first method is to start from scratch with the seeds. Another option is to purchase seedlings from a nursery.

How to Grow Brinjal:

Brinjal is easy to grow in India because the country’s climate is conducive to their growth. Brinjal germinates best when the temperature is above 20°C. You can start the germination process by planting the seeds in tiny pots. When the seeds germinate and the saplings have four leaves, they are ready to be transplanted into larger pots where they will thrive.

Climate Requirements:

After the winters have gone, the best time to cultivate this vegetable in your gardens is in the spring. However, if you grow it in pots, you can plant it at any time of year, regardless of the season, because you can relocate the plant as the weather changes. Brinjal may be grown in India even during the winters.

Fertilizer Requirement:

In terms of fertilizer, Brinjal plants are heavy feeders and require specific fertilizer dosages. 1/4 compost and the same amount of rotted cow dung should be used to make a soil mix. During the mid-growth period, add a handful of manure.

Pest:

Brinjal pests include the black flea beetle, aphids, and cutworms. You may easily get rid of these pests by applying DIY insecticides like neem oil or a few drops of dishwashing soap.

Water Requirement:

These plants prefer evenly moist soil, water them every day throughout the summer and every 2 or 3 days during the winter or rainy season. Ensure that the pot contains drainage holes to prevent the plant from rotting due to wet soil.

Sunlight:

Plants require a lot of warmth and sunlight while developing, place them in a sunny location. A proper air circulation system is also required for optimal plant growth.
