Planting and Care for Dolichos Seeds

Sowing Dolichos Seeds

  • Soak seeds overnight prior to planting to ensure good germination. If planting outdoors, sow the Dolichos seeds after the last spring frost in a sunny area in a grow bag; simply cover the seed with a light dusting of soil.
  • They can germinate in approximately two weeks to one month at a temperature of approximately 21 degrees Centigrade.

Growing Dolichos Seeds

  • Transplant seedlings when they have at least two sets of true leaves.
  • Dolichos Bean Vine is a low-maintenance plant. Direct sunlight is ideal for growth. Plants prefer nutrient-dense, well-draining soils that support their fast, all-season growth. Incorporate a healthy dose of organic vermicompost into the soil prior to planting.
  • Plants require an abundance of water and nutrients. Although they appreciate plenty of water, they despise wet soil. Maintain a moist but not wet soil. Fertilizer should be applied during the planting process and once a month during the growing season.
  •  Summer is when plants begin to flower and continue to do so until the fall. Purple pods may begin to develop following the blooming of the flowers. They can reach a length of three inches. Raw beans contain toxins. Maintain a healthy distance between children and pets. Boiling beans for a prolonged period of time destroys the venom and makes them edible.
  • Since Dolichos beans are climbers, they will need help from a creeper net as they grow.
  • Since Dolichos are only reliably grown from seed, avoid taking cuttings or splitting seeds.
  • Dolichos are half-hardy perennials that are often grown as half-hardy annuals in the greenhouse.
  • They are shrubby climbers that can grow up to 9 meters in height.
  • Dolichos bloom with pea-like flowers in purple, yellow, or white from summer to the first frost of winter.

Precautions while growing Dolichos Seeds

It needs at least 650mm of rainfall per year in dryland conditions, but can thrive with as little as 450mm with proper moisture management and cultivation on deep soils with good water retention ability.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soil types as long as they are well-drained. Although it is recommended that the soil pH be greater than 5.5 for optimum production, it can tolerate lower pH values. It is tolerant of low soil fertility but reacts positively to applications of Phosphorus and Sulphur. Liming is often beneficial in acidic soils. Prior to establishment, it is important to perform a soil analysis.

Common Problems affecting Dolichos Seeds and Solutions

Infestations by insects and diseases are rare. Apply insecticides, repellents, or fungicides as required. Although some varieties of beans are self-fertile, others are not. Even self-fertile plants can produce more fruit with the assistance of pollinators. Although it may seem to be a good idea to pile on fertilizer, it frequently results in problems, especially with beans. Bean plants that obtain an excess of nitrogen will struggle to produce pods. This will also result in a reduction in the number of blossoms on bean plants as a whole. When temperatures rise too high, bean flowers wither. The intense heat stresses the bean plant, causing its blossoms to drop. Bean plants that are grown in overly moist soil will bloom but will not produce pods. Wet soil inhibits the plant's ability to absorb essential nutrients from the soil, and the bean plants are unable to produce pods. Inadequate water – Similar to excessive heat, bean plants that receive inadequate water become exhausted and drop their blossoms in order to focus on the mother plant's survival. Bean plants need between five and seven hours of light per day to produce pods, and between eight and ten hours to produce pods that are of high quality. Inadequate sunlight can be caused by incorrect plant location or too near planting of bean plants. Disease and pests will wreak havoc on a bean plant. Bean plants that have been weakened will prioritize survival over pod growth.
