Then, after a couple more days, I took a peek again. There are more of them, and those sprouting earlier seems to grow stronger! Yep, papayas, alright! In my recycled flower pot.
After a few more readings on the next step, I discovered another school of thought, that you shouldn't grow them in pots or nursery bags, but the location where you want them grow. Oh well, too late for that. I'll make do with this current arrangement.
I just need to transfer them to the location. At first my intention is just to replant one or two plants only and hopefully they are male and female, but not according to that source. I need to plant several, and in my case, maybe all. Then once they grew and you can identify the male/female from their flowers, then you can remove the unwanted ones. The flowers of the male and female plants below.
The Female Plant. The flowers are in singles in a stem.
The male plant. There a several smaller flowers a stem.
You need both male and female plant for the papaya to fruit. Otherwise they will just bear flowers and will not fruit. You need only one male plant to fruit ten female plants.
Ok, my next project, I decided is pinapples!
