Some websites or guides may suggest in not using commercial soils as they are unfit to grow kratom plant. But most people have tried growing kratom plant with commercial soil and have succeeded in growing the plant. Even the soil found in the backyards of your house can be used for growing kratom. The important thing you need to know is that the soil you use for planting the kratom needs to be fertile, should drain well and should have an ideal ph level. For growing kratom, the ideal ph needs to be between 5.5 and 6.5. If the soil has no proper ph, the nutrients of the soil may not reach the plant and may result in a nutrient deficiency.
So, how do you adjust the ph level of the soil, you are using for planting kratom? Simple, just try adding Epsom salt which can help the plants in absorbing nutrients from the soil. By using lime, you can adjust the ph of the soil to be more alkaline and also sulfur can be used to adjust the ph to be more acidic.
Checking the ph level of the water you use for planting the kratom is also important. Most people use distilled water for watering kratom. But you need to know that the ph level of distilled water is extremely low. This is because the air interacts with distilled water which causes a change in the ph level and can cause damage to the kratom plant. You can check the ph level of your water, by using a good ph meter. But if you don’t have one, you can test the water by using ph paper. Buying a ph meter would cost you more as compared to buying ph paper. You can also use a soil test kit for periodically testing your kratom’s soil.
A larger pot is recommended when planting kratom, as the plant requires more space for growing. Larger pots or containers will allow your kratom plants for spreading out below the soil, taking in more moisture and growing fast. As the pot will hold more moisture, you would not need to water the plant frequently. But you need to water the plants well, whenever the topmost layer of the soil starts to dry out.
Kratom plants love light. You can either install LED or HPS or simply keep the plant directly under a fluorescent light which is comparatively cheaper to run and is much easier to set up.
