Hello everyone. Recently I was told I could grow my own millet! I was amazed. I love gardening so I thought I would like to try this. Has anyone successfully grown their own millet? I have some pots and potting soil. I just don't know what seeds I need. Could I possibly grow from what I already have? I will post a picture of my millet. Thanks!
I am also growing my own millet now too!
It's such a delight to see them get taller and grow everyday, yet, at the same time, it's making me impatient as I'm just too excited to harvest them XD
All I did was I just sprinkled the millet seeds into the soil and covered it up a bit (not too far into the ground, I just sprinkled it over). I then used a spray bottle to water it.
It will obviously take a long time to grow and for it to be ready (as they grow a few meters high).
Just make sure not to overwater it too much when it's just seeds.
I'm pretty sure they'll be fine in whatever pot you put in. I'm not an experienced gardener so you could check online whether the type of pot affects the plants/growth - pretty sure it doesn't though.
Seeing the lid at the bottom, I'm guessing that the pot itself has a hole at the bottom for any excess water to go through?
Make sure to give them sunlight also.
I managed to grow my own millet in garden, as well some other plants from seed in budgies food mix! My question now is - do I have to wash/sterilize before offering it to budgies? I haven't used any chemicals on them...
