Are you dreaming of enjoying sweet, juicy mangoes from your own tree? Well, you’re in luck! Growing a mango tree from a cutting in water is a simple and rewarding process that guarantees a 100% success rate. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Selecting the Right Mango: Choose a ripe and healthy mango from which to take your cutting. Look for a mango with firm, unblemished skin and a sweet aroma.
  2. Preparing the Cutting: Carefully remove the seed from the mango fruit and clean off any remaining flesh. Then, locate the embryo shoot at the top of the seed. This is what you’ll be using to grow your tree. Gently pry open the seed to reveal the shoot without damaging it.
  3. Soaking the Cutting: Fill a glass or jar with water and place the mango shoot inside, making sure the bottom is submerged. Change the water every few days to keep it fresh and oxygenated.
  4. Location and Sunlight: Find a sunny spot for your mango cutting to sit. Mango trees thrive in warm, sunny conditions, so choose a location with plenty of sunlight.
  5. Patience and Care: Be patient as you wait for roots to develop. It may take several weeks for roots to start growing from the bottom of the cutting. During this time, make sure to keep the water clean and the cutting in a warm environment.
  6. Transplanting: Once the roots have grown to a few inches long, your cutting is ready to be transplanted into soil. Choose a large pot with well-draining soil and plant the cutting, making sure the roots are covered. Water the soil thoroughly after planting.
  7. Caring for Your Mango Tree: Place your potted mango tree in a sunny spot and water it regularly, making sure the soil is consistently moist but not waterlogged. As your tree grows, you may need to repot it into a larger container to accommodate its increasing size.
  8. Enjoying the Fruits of Your Labor: With proper care and attention, your mango tree will grow into a beautiful, fruit-bearing tree that will reward you with delicious mangoes for years to come. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor!

By following these simple steps, you can successfully grow a mango tree from a cutting in water, ensuring a 100% success rate and bringing the joy of homegrown mangoes right to your doorstep. Happy gardening!
