Planting and care
Place one lychee seed into each cup, on its side, at a depth of 3 to 4 inches; then cover. Place the trays or cups in a warm, sunny place like a windowsill, a sun room or a greenhouse. Water regularly to keep the soil damp. After 3 to 4 weeks, the shoot will grow to 3 to 4 inches in size and develop dark green leaves.
Caring for Litchi
- Lychee trees are water lovers and should be irrigated regularly. However, avoid creating waterlogged conditions, which may result in diminished health or root rot.
