Bulk Solanum melongsensis seeds are an attractive fast growing member of this family of herbs. This perennial plant grows best in the warm, tropical and subtropical tropical climates surrounding the Indian Ocean. The plant itself is an evergreen vine or a creeping vine with long, green climbing branches which reach up to approximately three feet in length. It prefers a soil that has medium to light sand or clay content, well drained and well irrigated.
The bulk solanum melongena seeds can be separated into two classes based on their origin: wet-land and dry-land. Both types of seeds can be stored for extended periods in an airtight container. Seedlings that have been started from seed can be sowed in pots and spread across the lawn as senery.
The moist-land bulk solanum seeds have been described by some herbalists as having a flavor similar to lemongrass or wormwood, but with a milder aroma. The plants are said to be most useful for treating chronic diarrhea as well as aiding stool function. Other chronic conditions treated successfully include cystic fibrosis, hematuria and multiple sclerosis. The seeds have also proven effective for treating morning sickness in women.
Dry-land bulk Solanum seeds have a distinct bitter taste. They are said to be more aromatic than the former. These have the added benefit of being able to resist mould and fungus and therefore can be used in the home environment for curing a range of fungal infections including ringworm. If the plant is propagated successfully, the plants should grow into plants of good quality and resistance to pests. It is not unusual for the plant to bear fruit.
Seedlings of both plants are available from most garden centers, but it is best to purchase in bulk to ensure a consistent supply throughout the growing season. Be sure to plant these seeds deep, around fences or other enclosures to prevent them from spreading to other plants nearby. Once established, the Solanums will provide year-round blooms in a range of colors. There is no need to water these plants because they do not require a great deal of attention.
Planting bulk solanum requires that you select plants that have the same sun requirements as your chosen species of solanaceae. Do your homework and study the full growing cycle of each plant. When you plan to buy your seedlings, check with the local nursery to determine what plants will be best suited to your area. Most reputable nurseries sell bulk solanum seedlings that are identified with specific sun requirements.
The soil mix you use for planting bulk solanum should consist primarily of well-rotted garden compost. This soil should be moist but not soggy. If you place it in a shallow pot, the plants will not have room to grow. Place the seedlings in individual pots, several inches deep. Cover the bottom of the pots with a light layer of mulch, such as straw or wood chips.
Water the plants daily and keep the soil moist. As the seedlings mature, they will need to be supplemented with fertilizer. Fertilizer can be applied once a month until the plants appear to be producing their fruits. Do not over-fertilize.
Plant your seedlings in rows about six to eight feet apart. They can be placed in peat moss in well rotted garden soil. Cover the moss with a light layer of mulch. This will give the plants shade as well as protection from the sun. The mulch acts as a shield from the elements while the seedlings are growing.
Once the plants begin to produce flowers, remove them from the bulk solanum and place them in peat moss. Once the blooms have bloomed they should be removed from the bulk. Allow the plants to dry out on a wire tray. The soil should be packed tightly to prevent it from drying out. Once the plants have dried out, remove them from the bulk and place them in a large terracotta pot.
When the plant flowers the seeds will need to be harvested. Use a sharp knife to cut the flower heads from the bulk solanum plant. Do not be too aggressive when cutting the flower heads, take care not to damage the seedling underneath. Place the cut flower buds on top of the soil filled with the bulk solanum. Allow the plant to bloom; once it blooms the roots will help take the plant's roots to the ground where they will continue to grow.
