HOW TO GROW A KIWI TREE FROM SEEDS
With lukewarm water and soak the kiwi tree seeds for 24 hours. This will help to soften the seed coat and improve germination. Kiwi trees prefer well-draining, fertile soil. Use a high-quality potting mix that is enriched with organic matter, such as compost or aged manure. Plant the kiwi tree seeds about 1 inch deep in the prepared soil. Water the soil lightly and cover the pot with plastic wrap or a clear plastic bag to create a greenhouse effect. The seeds need warmth and moisture to germinate. Place the pot in a warm, bright location, such as a windowsill or under grow lights, and water the soil as needed to keep it moist. It can take several weeks to germinate, so be patient. Once the seedlings emerge, remove the plastic wrap or bag and continue to care for the seedlings as they grow.
CARE FOR KIWI TREE AFTER GERMINATION
Kiwi seedlings need bright, indirect light to grow properly. Place them near a south-facing window or under grow lights for at least 12-16 hours per day. Kiwi seedlings should be watered regularly, but not over-watered. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and avoid letting the soil dry out completely between waterings. Once the seedlings have developed their second set of leaves, you can begin to fertilize them with a balanced fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10 formula. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and frequency. Kiwi trees are vulnerable to frost damage, so if you live in a colder climate, you may need to protect your kiwi tree during the winter months.
