How To Grow Kratom Plants

 This guide includes everything you need to know about growing Kratom. By  the end of this guide, you will know How to grow Kratom. I will list my recommendations for Soil, Lights, Fertilizers, And other soil additive that will help your Kratom plants grow, and thrive.

What Type Of Soil Do Kratom Plants Like

This is the type of soil that I recommend, Because Kratom plants prefer to have well draining soil. If your soil doesn't drain well, you can add Perlite to the mix. You may also want to add vermiculite, especially if you live in an extremely dry/hot climate. The Vermiculite will help retain even more moisture, and the Perlite will help keep the soil loose and well draining. 

This is the brand name of soil that I recommend for growing Kratom. I have always had really good results from using this brand. I will also add some extra Perlite to the mix, to make it drain even better, but that is optional with this brand of soil, because it does contain a good amount of Perlite in the mix. If you want to add more, you can. If you are using Organic soil, make sure to use Organic Perlite.

Which Fertilizer Is Best For Growing Kratom?

This is the type of fertilizer that I recommend for Kratom plants. You can mix this organic fertilizer into your soil really well before placing your Kratom plants into their new containers. If you already have your Kratom plants in their new containers, you can always top dress the soil with a teaspoon of fertilizer every few weeks. Make sure to spread it evenly over the top of the soil and slightly away from the trunk of the Kratom plant.

The Recommended Soil Additives For Growing Kratom

I would also highly recommend using Rock Dust in your soil mix. Rock Dust is full of minerals that will boost the overall health of the Kratom plant, making it more resistant to disease and pests, You can think of it as a multi-vitamin for plants. Click Here For My Recommend Brand Of Rock Dust.

Green Sand is also a good source for nutrients that Kratom plants will really like. Green Sand contains silica, iron, magnesium, and as many as +30 other trace minerals, which will help your Kratom plants to thrive. Green sand will also help loosen the soil, and help with drainage. 

Kelp Meal is also a good soil additive for growing Kratom.

How To Replant Kratom Plants Into New Containers.

If you're growing Kratom and it's currently in a 4"-6" container, I would recommend replanting them into either 6" or 8" container, if the plant is becoming root bound. This will help the plants root system to grow out in the soil and become better established. If you plant a smaller Kratom tree into a very large container, the roots will sometimes grow straight to the bottom of the container and become root bound, this is not good. It is always best to replant into a container that is slightly larger than the previous one. 

If you are planning on growing Kratom trees that are large, I would recommend using these Grow Bags/Smart Pots, because they will air prune the root system. Air pruning causes the root system to push out new roots where it is less crowded in the soil. You will not have problems with them becoming root bound, In fact many plant nursery’s will only use Grow Bags for their larger trees, because the trees won't become root bound, and they don't have to continuously replant into larger containers. You can also use these larger smart pots for smaller trees, just don't fill the bags up all of the way, instead fold the sides down to the size that you prefer, depending on your Kratom plant size. 

 Kratom Growing Tips:

  1. Don't use Miracle Grow Soil. 
  2. Make sure your soil is well draining.
  3. Replant Kratom trees into slightly larger containers, once they start to become root bound, not huge containers(they may cause root rot).
  4. Add Trace Minerals to your soil mix, Rock Dust.

What Are The Differences In Each Of The Kratom Plant Strains?

Where To Find Kratom Plants

If you do not have your plants yet, you can search for Kratom plants for sale which should bring you right to EthnoDirect. They have all 5 Kratom plant strains, Super Green Malay, Rifat, Red Vein Thai, Bumblebee and even the rare Pink Vein Indo. These plants are normally listed and available. They are packaged professionally and extremely well, so you don't have to worry about spilled soil in the box or broken plants.

Which Grow Lights To Use For Kratom

A lot of people are interested in growing their Kratom plants indoors, but may not know which lights to use. I would recommend using a 150w HPS light, and include 4-6 6000k LED lights around the side for a wider spectrum of light, this will really boost the growth of these plants indoors. Don't even bother with the tube fluorescent lights, they may offer some growth but you won't be able to get that extremely fast growth that you get from the recommend lights. You can use these light clamps for your LED grow lights, This will allow you to position the light right above your Kratom plants.
