Orange is a delicious citrus fruit which is rich in Vitamin C. The juicy fruit is good for resisting diseases caused by the deficiency of Vitamin C. It is very common to give oranges to patients who are taking rest after an illness.
If we try growing an orange plant in the garden, we can stop buying them from markets. Also, there will be no room for the fear of pesticide residue on the fruit.
Steps to grow orange plant at home
Collect fully-grown seeds from the orange bought from market.
Rinse the seeds thoroughly.
Place tissue papers in the cap of a plastic bottle or airtight jar.
Moist the tissue paper slightly.
Arrange the orange seeds on tissue paper.
Put more tissue papers on top of the seeds and moist them.
Close the jar tightly and place it where sunlight is available aplenty.
Open the lid only after 10-15 days.
When the seeds sprout, plant them on soil.
Add compost or cow dung powder in soil while planting.
Take care not to break the roots of the sapling.
Slightly water the plant every day.
