How do you germinate okra seeds fast?
To speed germination, soak seeds for a few hours in warm water before sowing. Plant okra seeds about 1/2 to 1 inch deep and 12 to 18 inches apart in a row. You can soak the seeds overnight in tepid water to help speed up germination.
When should I start okra seeds?
Okra is a plant that's all about summer. Although it grows over a wide range — from zone 4 to 11 — don't sow seeds outdoors or plant out seedlings until all risk of spring frost has passed. Okra can be started from seed indoors four to six weeks between the last possible frost date.
How often should I water okra?
Okra loves the heat and can withstand a dry spell, but do your best to give plants 1 inch of water every week. Harvest okra pods when they are 2 to 4 inches long.
How do you grow okra seeds in pots?
Sow two or three okra seeds one half to one inch deep into each pot. Water with a watering can or a sprayer set on shower and place your containers in a bright, warm location. The soil needs to remain moist until your seeds germinate, which takes about five to ten days after sowing seed.
