Growing Your Own Kratom
If you are a true homesteader, then you are all about creating a sustainable, eco friendly lifestyle which includes growing your own food, raising your own cattle, chickens, and more and harvesting your own herbs.
If you are also a Kratom enthusiast, you may be wondering if you can grow Kratom in your own backyard!
In this article we are going to quickly go through the steps needed to grow your own Kratom.
We want to first start off by saying that growing Kratom is extremely hard.
To begin, you need fresh seeds which are nearly impossible to find in the United States and Canada and even in many Southeast Asian countries where Kratom mostly comes from.
Many places claim to sell Kratom seeds, but they may not be fresh.

Steps for Growing Your Own Kratom:
a) Find the freshest seeds/sprouts possible
b) Planting kratom outdoors is most likely the worst way to attempt to grow this botanical. You need a light, humidity, and temperature-controlled environment. Kratom seeds like moist, humid environments. Humidity is one of the factors that changes the alkaloid content of the kratom leaves. The average humidity in areas where Kratom thrives is between 72 and 74 percent. So if you setup a greenhouse area, make sure the soil has ample moisture and the room is very humid with lots of light.
c) Use humus, fertile rich soil and fertilize as the plant grows, especially in the early stages until you see that the roots have found a spot and they are thriving.
d) Don’t over water, but keep the soil moist. You can do this by using a drip system rather than watering once per day.
e) Try to keep artificial light or sunlight during the germination period low.
f) Keep humidity levels as close as possible to the seed’s country of origin.
This quick list might not sound too challenging but the truth is that growng your own Kratom is extremely difficult.
These plants are picky about water, moisture, light and humidity and if you are not familiar with the climates in which they thrive, it will be even more challenging.
If you already have some fresh seeds, we say give it a go!
However, if you feel like this all sounds overwhelming, don’t waste your money and time.
