Kratom Info

Kratom prefers to grow in hot, humid environments with well draining soil. Kratom plants are hard to germinate and cuttings are also hard to root. Kratom likes the heat and will get damaged and maybe die with temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. To reduce cold damage keep your plants in a sunny window during colds spells or in a greenhouse.  You can also help protect your plants with a horticultural blanket placed over your plants. The plants grow quickly when good draining potting soil is used. Kratom trees can grow up to 20 feet wide and over 50 feet high. To feed the plants you can use a general tree fertilizer but be sure to follow the fertilizer label directions and start at quarter strength to make sure you don't over fertilize the plants ( browning along the leaf edges is one sign of overfertilization.) Try to use natural ferilizers derived from fish emulsion/meal and/or earthworm castings spread over the top of the soil. If growing indoors you can use florescent lights, LED's, metal halide, or high pressure sodium lamps. Using a humidifier and providing fresh air will help the plants do well indoors in temperatures ranging from 50 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit with 80 being ideal. To protect plants from bug damage be sure to control any ant populations since they protect the pests that feed on your plants. If bug populations are noticed then spraying the plant with a strong jet of water using a nozzle on your hose usually keeps the pests down. If the pests persist then you can use insecticidal soap or other integrated pest management techniques.
