I recently picked up Double Beans seeds from OFYT. I have never grown them before.. need some info -
1. What is the amount of sunlight that it requires? Can it thrive in the balcony?
2. Will I have to transplant the seedlings? or can I grow them directly in the pot?
3. 1:1:1 Vermicompost, Cocopeat and red soil would be good enough for the plant?
4. Apart from Panchgavya, is there any other organic fertilizer that the plant will require?
you can spray neem oil every 10 days on the leaves ( both the sides ) and drench the soil around the roots. 300- 500 ppm oil is very good. 5 ml neem oil can be mixed with 8 l of water. add half a teaspoon of mild detergent powder( acts as a surfactant and helps in mixing oil and water) spray every 10 days and every 7 days during flowering. the strong odour of the oil does not seem friendly to the butterflies that lay their eggs on the underside of the leaves.
neem oil contains azadirachtin besides other chemicals. azadirachtin acts as an anti feedant i.e it does not allow moths , butterflies ,bugs, beetles, worms ,larvae to feed on the leaves. it also does not allow the eggs of these insects to stick on the leaves.it is not harmful to bees, earthworms and birds. so it is relatively safe to use as a bio insecticide. there is a factory in peenya industrial 2nd stage..... "agroextracts " where one can purchase neem oil and neem seed cake at factory rates but in bulk.
