how fast does kratom grow
    #8710225 - 08/01/08 01:57 AM (6 years, 2 months ago)

or, more to the point, in your experience, how big should a kratom plant be before i can harvest some leaves?

and, even better, harvest leaves daily


--------------------
There's just one small problem...


...and it's a big one!

ive heard that once it gets past its seedling stage it really takes off till it fills the pot

and also from my reading, it is suggested it should be a couple years old before you harvest, but it regenerates its leaves like crazy

kratom is also something that is extremely hard to overwater

(this advice is not from personal experience but from a couple days of searching and forum lurking :lurker:)

I have 4 plants about 1.5m tall now, grown from seed and I still wouldn't be able to harvest them daily. I think realistically between the 4 plants and my normal pruning to keep them at a manageable size I get maybe one larger dose every 3 weeks or so. If you actually wanted to harvest every day you'd need to let them grow into a small tree, they do grow fast but I think until they get tree size you wont be doing regular harvesting.

kratom is no slouch...

february 2007...


october 2007...


i imagine that if i hadn't neglected my plants this growth rate would have continued and probably increased :yesnod:

within 2 years there would probably be enough leaf to take a decent harvest, as for every day harvesting i don't know :shrug:

i never bothered to pH check :shrug:
i use all kinds of different nutrients (grow feed for weed, seaweed extracts, fish mix, bat guano) at different times so i guess it varies depending on what i add to the water...
tap water here is 7 so i shouldn't think it budges a great deal from neutral...

WTF? They took your kratom? Bastards. For some reason the postal police opened a Priority envelope and "inspected" my kratom extract. I don't understand why they opened it in the first place. They just attached a note to it. Jackasses.:mad2: Oh well, I made tea lol.

I had several Rifat clones that grew very, very fast. I was constantly taking clones until someone stole all of it. Now, thanks to a fellow shroomerite :wink:, I am starting over. BTW, I don't use them for material. Its easier to buy it. I just grow them for fun, just like poppies and MJ :grin:.

My plants are in pots outdoors, and I found that the wind is rough on them if the larger leaves are not picked regurally.  The leaves are to 'dumb' to turn away from the wind (I mean that lovingly, of course.)

I also find the leaves to be plently rich in intellegence as soon as they are mature, even on trees just a month or two rooted, when they are in ideal conditions.

90's during the summer.  Lows in the 40's during the winter. It gets plenty of water from the sprinkler and occasional fertilizer.

It really depends also on whether you are growing from seed or from cuttings. If your growing from seed your not gonna get a specimen the size of Daznick's Kratom in as little as 2 years. He probably started off with a mature cutting. My seedlings havn't got much past 6 inches in 6 months. However my Rifat mature cutting has been putting on growth like a champ and i've only had her for about 5 weeks.

My guess would be starting from seed will take around 5 years to get a nice large tree. Starting from mature cutting just about 2 years like Daznick's size. I'm only guessing thoe. I haven't been lucky enough to grow any for that period of time yet. Hopefully I will.

Rifat kratom cutting. Started around 8-10 inches.



7-8 Month old Red Vein Thai kratom. Still like babies
