oh they're easily propagated from seeds. :)/>

From my limited experience, prior to sowing remove all the fleshs/pulps and soak in water for 1 or 2 hrs, Keep the soil moist but not soggy. That's it!

It's easiest to propagate by seeds - (it's red in colour). I've also tried marcotting it. It's possible, but not as easy as seeds.

  • Interests:I love collecting rare and exotic plants but I mostly love making hybrids out of them. I am interested in seeing what they will look like when they grow especially Anthuriums.<br /><br />I mostly sell my plants but I also like to trade them for specific plants that I think I dont have in volume or are not in my collection.<br /><br />

They are all right, seeds are the easiest way of propagating it. Marcotting or air layering do take a while for them to root depending what style your using... it usually takes 2-3 months for them to root. You can also try vacuuming the cut plant if you have some free space.

When my murraya seeds turn dark crimson, like black current grapes, I picked it, wash it, and throw it into my mouth to suck the sweet spicy flesh away from the twin seeds. Then I just threw it into the soil n press it down 1cm, in 4-5 days, it will show u it's baby head. I've now got 8 Murraya babies in thumb pots!

Oops, forgot to tell u that it is M. Koenig (curry plant). Yes, it's flesh are edible, sweet with a little spice aftertaste, quite refreshing actually, but unfortunately their berries are just a handful. Seeds germinate fast, easy to propagate.

OK let's get this right. You are saying the fruits of the curry plant can be eatened, not the murraya? Cos the murraya that I know is not the curry plant.

The "murraya plant" being discussed in this thread refers to Murraya paniculata.

Curry leaf tree is from the same genus & is botanically known as Murraya koenigii, but it's not commonly called murraya plant as that name generally refers to M. paniculata.

I sow the seed when they have a bit of red (ripeness) because I am not usually as quick as the birds. They are eyeing them daily. I take away the fleshy part and inside is like a pea pod (soft). Carefully peel away the soft skin and inside contain the seeds, TWO! if you CAREFULLY split into half. The fresher the seed the quicker the germination for this plant. My Murraya plant is of the Thai variety which have more rounded leafs and it don't grow as tall. It can bear fruit when they are just 2" tall. Sow the seeds on to cracks in the soil, make sure you can still see half the seed.

Well this is my method. Hope it works for you too.

Some websites say M. paniculata fruits are not edible but I also come across sources that state that the fruits are edible. When in doubt, do not eat. The fruit has a nice scent though. Since I don't even eat curry berries, thus will never eat M. paniculata fruits.

Dun worry, curry plant r non poisonous, u should try the curry berries, they r sweet n they r an acquired taste. It's a seasonal berry!

Here's a pic of Thai Murray plant grown from seed. The pot size is 2 inches diameter with a single flower.
