My ketchup bottle #mango-seedling hasn't died yet, and has even put out a 2nd or 3rd storey of leaves. 23 July 2023 #fromseed #grocerystoreplant

Leaves are greening up and lifting out like an umbrella ☂️ less droopy, finally. Looking more like a baby tree 🌳 8 Aug 2023 #mango #mango-seedling #treesfromseeds #grocerystoreplant

These first #mango leaves are getting humongous. But the strange thing is it doesn't seem to have made any new leaves. Maybe it's a mango thing. 1 Apr 2023 #seedling #mango-seedling #treesfromseeds

Such a smart idea to reuse your ketchup bottles why have I not thought of this!

I worked at the office for the last two days, so when I went into the home office this morning, I saw the #mango-seedling had grown quite a bit! 22 Mar 2023 #mango #treesfromseeds #grocerystoreplant

Baby #mango popped up its first leaves today -- so surprised there's more than just two cotyledons! 14 Mar 2023 #treesfromseeds #mango-germination #mango-seedlings #mango-seedling #grocerystoreplant

Eeeeeee my #mango bean is about to pop up from its ketchup bottle pot. What am I going to do with a mango plant in zone 7? I don't know but who cares! 13 Mar 2023 #germinating-mangoseeds #mango-germination #grocerystoreplant #mangoseedling

I was able to grow my avocado for 5 years in the house before he got to big.

@emch actually, I looked at it more closely today and discovered..... it's 🍄 not 🌱. Got a little overexcited. Like I do ROUTINELY.

This is my #mangoseed "planter" -- which I put on a heat mat after planting. The plastic on top is a sandwich baggie taped down to keep the moisture in. 22 Feb 2023

Growing mango in a ketchup bottle and a pic of a tomato… might be confusing but tickling beautiful idea

Ate a #mango today, and noticed the pit had split itself open. So of course I had to look at what was inside -- this gigantic bean! It also split its seed cover and seems really eager to grow, so I guess I'm growing a mango now. 20 Feb 2023
