The Curry leaf plant is being delivered to you with the bare roots or in a small pot These were grown from seeds which came from an Indian mother plant When received, it needs to be rested for 4 weeks in the same pot and it needs to be indoors near a window sill ( if temp. is less than 50) or outdoors in a shaded place Thereafter, take a 5 gallon container with drainage holes and fill it with the potting mix recommended in this document Remove plant from small pot and place in container Ensure that the plant stands upright and is firmly set in the soil Water the plant on the sides and wait till the water drains from the bottom Now keep the plant in a shaded area for about 15 days As the roots take ground ensure that in the evening the plant is stored indoors and not exposed to the low temperatures They like temperatures from 60 to 80 Do not feed any fertilizers for about 2 months Thereafter as new buds start emerging and the plant grows in height, these acidic loving plants need fertilizers as recommended in this document Wish you the best with maintenance of this plant In case of any questions plz drop me a line and I will gladly respond to your questions and help you in every way possible CHEERS Potting /planting mix 50% Supersoil brand Palm / Cactus mix and either 50% native soil (If planting into the ground) or 50% Azalea/Camellia mix (Acid Mix) if transplanting into a larger container. Fertilizers Once a month from March to October with a slow-release dry granular product such as Osmacote ( for acid-loving plants) Liquid fish fertilizer(Atlas or Alaska brand) - 3 Tablespoons per gallon dilution rate and 6 cups of the diluted fish solution to each curry leaf. Every other month apply some form of iron based product to it as well. Try using approximately 20% iron sulfate (Green colored, sand textured, dry product) at the rate of only two tablespoons per plant and increase the quantity as the plant grows. There are other iron products available such as chelated forms of iron (Powdered). One such product is called GROW MORE Iron Chelate 10% and I would only apply 1 teaspoon per plant every other month. Apply 3 tablespoons powdered gypsum the month after the application of iron ( In other words, do not apply the gypsum at the same time as the iron). Keep in mind that the above mentioned suggestions are important for helping the plant actively grow while it is still young (For the next two years).
