Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a must have plant for every house because it is really really easy to grow. Just buy a small one from Nursery and keep it at a sunny spot. Water it only twice a week because watering too much can cause it to rot. No need to give some fertilizers because it thrives in all type of soils.

Now a picture of my Aloe Vera. Its not in very good condition but I don't take much of its care either.

Next time I'm gonna tell you about some other plant. Do let me know if you have any queries.

Murraya Koenigii - The Curry Leaf Plant

One of the most famous asian herb is Murraya Koenigii which is most commonly known as Curry leaf plant. It is also known as Sweet Neem. It is fairly easy to grow and can accept larger type of weather conditions. To grow it from seeds, put them in moist soil and water regularly. The seeds will take 20 days or so to germinate. Another mehtod is to buy a small plant from nursery and plant it in a pot or garden and water regularly with 2 or more days interval depending on how quickly its soil gets dry. It will grow very quickly.

Now here is a picture of my Curry leaf plant. If you have any questions you are welcome to ask.

Its leaves are highly aromatic and used in different type of Indian & Pakistani cuisines. It is mostly used to flavor & smell the food.

How to grow Mint

Mint is a herb that is very easy to grow and it spreads very quickly. Perfect thing to grow if you are disappointed with many other plants that do not grow well.

To grow mint, simply purchase a mint plant from nursery and plant it inside a container. Water it regularly and within few days your container will be full of fresh mint which you can use anytime.

Mint likes moderately rich soil and damp conditions. Light sunlight is also very important, very harsh sunlight can cause mint leaves to burn.

Here is picture of the mint I planted and it took a month only for them to grow this big..

Please do leave your comments if you liked my posts or if you have questions regarding mint growing.
