“Follow Our Traditional Cultivation & Have Healthy Lifestyle”

In India, the Thandu Keerai is a very popular spinach that is grown all over the country. The nutrient-dense Thandu Keerai is rich in vitamins A and C.

How to Grow Thandu Keerai:

The Thandu Keerai prefers warm, temperate climates. The ideal temperature for Thandu Keerai plants to grow quickly is between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. The Thandu Keerai requires partial sunlight. Use a container with drainage holes at the bottom of your choice. Fill the container with the appropriate soil potting layers and the growing material of your choice. Sow two seeds in the pot’s center.

Climate Requirements:

It’s a warm-weather crop that flourishes in tropical climates with temperatures ranging from 77 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit (25-30C). It’ll also work well in areas with a lot of rain and humidity. Extreme cold and frost should be avoided; the Thandu Keerai is sensitive to damage under such conditions. If you’re growing them in containers, it’s best to bring them indoors to keep them safe.

Propagation:

Seeds, pots, the ground, or seedling trays are all used to propagate the Thandu Keerai seeds. Soaking the seeds overnight before sowing increases the odds of good germination. Thin out the weak leaves as soon as the young plants have 5-6 leaves. They’ll be ready to transplant in 2-3 weeks after seeding.

Fertilizer Requirement:

The Thandu Keerai is a low-maintenance plant that can thrive without fertilizer. Even yet, if the soil is deficient in nutrients, you can use an all-purpose fertilizer when planting. Fertilize the plant again if it exhibits signs of sluggish growth. Compost or well-rotted aged manure can also be used to improve the soil. Regular organic matter additions will also benefit the plant.

Pest Management:

Plants can be severely harmed by red beetles, fruit flies, caterpillars, and aphids. Spraying a jet of neem oil combination on them will take care of them. Also, be wary of the mosaic virus, powdery mildew, and downy mildew when cultivating Thandu Keerai. To protect the plant from these illnesses, avoid pouring water on the leaves. If it’s infected, pull it out.

Water Requirement:

Water every 3-4 days during the early stages of growth. Increase the frequency to every other day as the plant begins to blossom and fruit. Overwatering the plant might result in root rot.

Sunlight:

For best results, choose a location that receives partial sun. Protect the plant from the afternoon sun during the hot summer months. Because it’s a vining plant, you’ll need to give it enough room to spread out or place it near a fence or wall for support.
