Growing brinjals in pot
Both Ethan and Ayden are not a fan of brinjals so I was initially a little hesitant to try planting it. However, I ran out of veges to plant so I bought brinjal seeds to try planting. To my surprise, brinjal plant grows effortlessly and bear fruits so easily.
Compared to the trouble I went through growing sweetcorn in pots, this brinjal came out as a no challenge. If you have never try planting, you might want to try with brinjals for its higher success rate. All you need is some soil, a pot, some seeds and a place with plenty of sunshine.
The seed germinates easily and in just a few days, I see 100% success out of the 3 seeds I put into the soil earlier. I transfered them into individual clay pots and placed those pots where they receive direct sunlight.
I water the brinjal plants with eggshell and coffee tea everyday and in less than two months, I saw flowers blooming.
My brinjal plants attract many insects especially ants but I read somewhere that ants also pollinate some kind of flowers so I let them be with the hope that they’ll pollinate my brinjal flower.
My brinjal plant is still very tiny so I did not bother to check it for fruits but one evening as I was about to pull weeds and clear plant debris from the pot, I saw a beautiful brinjal.
Woo hoo! My brinjal plant is a success and I did nothing but water it everyday.
