Three weeks ago I posted a video on germinating mango pits:
Earlier this week, Shane sent me an email on his own mango germination:
“Check out the baby mango I planted from seed (2weeks ago) using your technique from the video you posted (How to Germinate a Mango Pit the FAST Way)! Planted the same day, same way. How’s it look!? I’m totally stoked for free mangoes, thank you David!”
Removing the outer husk really speeds the germination process.
…and after sending me that first picture, Shane sent me another one of his new mango tree actually talking:
I’ve germinated two mango seeds following your video and I was so happy that even here in the east spanish coast, with an autumn mediterranean weather, it worked!!!
Since temperatures are dropping low, I brought one of the saplings indoors home, and the other one indoors in my workplace office, which is always around 20ºC and walls are almost all crystal, letting natural light go in around 10-12 hours a day.
The one home is fine, and so was the one in the office for the month the sprout started growing out of the soil, although, it started growing dark spots in the lamina of its leaves, in between its veins.
May you guide me a bit? We have become very attached to the plant, we even sing to it, hahaha! We wouldn’t like to lose it.
I’ve read it might be a fungal infection, maybe atracnosis. I’ve reduced watering, but I’m not sure what to do with the infection.
Is there a way to heal the baby?
I uploaded a couple of pics here:
Thanks a lot, mate!
I love your videos!!!
It’s probably just a little damp, but if it gets worse, you might try adding a teaspoon of plain yogurt to a cup of rainwater, shaking it up, then spraying the leaves. The yogurt bacteria should wipe it out.
