How To Grow Indian Gooseberry In 6 Easy Steps

# 1 | Soak the seeds in a bowl of water overnight. Sow the seeds that sink to the bottom and discard any that float to the top of the water.

# 2 | Soak your remaining Indian gooseberry seeds for five minutes in hot water to improve germination. Drain the water and plant your seeds immediately.

# 3 | Use a mixture of half potting soil and half compost for best results. Pour water onto the soil mixture until it feels moderately moist throughout. Sow one Indian gooseberry seed in each pot at a depth of roughly 1/4 inch.

# 4 | Place the pots in a warm area. Use a propagation mat if temperatures drop below 70 F.

# 5 | Check the soil mixture twice daily to ensure it never fully dries out. Water to a 2-inch depth if the soil feels barely moist just beneath the surface. Avoid letting the soil dry out, but also try to avoid making it soggy.

# 6 | Watch for the first seedlings in 18-24 days. Remove the propagation mat once the seeds germinate. Grow your Indian gooseberry seedlings under dappled shade for their first summer with one to two inches of water each week. Slowly acclimate them to stronger sunlight in late summer. Transplant them into a permanent bed or planter in autumn.
