Curry tree plant loves the warm, humid surroundings and loves subtropical and tropical heat. There, it is easy to grow even for a beginner. It needs full sun and moderate watering to thrive.
Plant it in the sunniest spot in your garden, do regular watering in the next two months and pinch off its white flowers in the first two years to appreciate healthy growth. Once settled, it’ll start to grow up quickly.
Gardeners below USDA Zone 9 or where winters are harsh should grow it in a container. Spring is the best season for planting. Plant this in a 5-gallon container and upgrade the size of it as the growth progresses. It can tolerate mild freezing temperature but needs a lot of care in winter, in too much cold it shed its leaves and goes dormant until spring and start a new growth again.
Propagate it from cuttings (suckers of the plant) or seeds— remove hard outer shell before sowing for faster germination. Use fresh seeds for high germination rate. Sow them in good quality potting soil. If your temperature is not warm around 20 C layer it with polyethylene or keep it in the greenhouse because the seeds germinate in warm temperature.
In the beginning, it’s a slow grower and reaches a height of 6-10 inches in a year (depending on the climate and growing conditions), so give it its time to settle.
In the natural tropical conditions, this plant is hardy when matured and doesn’t die even in the severest of conditions like drought, extreme temperatures, and infertile soil.
Regular pruning or picking of leaves is essential to promote the fresh foliage growth. Use nitrogen rich fertilizer in a month or two to boost the growth (don’t fertilize in dormant stage of the plant, which occurs in the winter in cooler areas).
