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.

    We’re the opposite, my girl loves brinjal…I only like it lightly steamed and eaten with sambal belacan, ulam…or cooked in curry.

    My family also not so fond of brinjal. I seldom cook brinjals at home.

    Wow! That’s a gigantic brinjal!

    I’ll love to eat it. It must be nice to have vegetables in your own home, can pluck one to cook and eat anytime you want.

    This proves that you have green fingers. The brinjal is big compared with the size of the plant.

    wah … you are becoming more and more of a gardener now… no more crafting ?

    Yay!! Ok you try onion, ginger, garlic, lemongrass, parsley, coriander, mint, basil. Super easy to grow. I pass you parsley and coriander seeds next time.

    I am about to start growing my very first veggies with seeds I received from Nparks. I will be planting brinjal and cai xin.
    I am unsure where to place them, do you think if they have 6 hours of direct sunlight daily it will be too much?

      6 hours of sunlight daily is okay for brinjals
