Any advice for a first timer like myself in how to go about growing such healthy bhindi as yours? I presume it feasts on full sun?

Like me you live in Karachi too. So, for such weather bhindi is very suitable.
1.Sow the seeds around 3/4 inch deep in the soil.
2. Ground a stick beside it for the future support of the plant.
3. Water regularly and ensure that the soil remains moist.
4. foliar spray of NPK after every 7 days.
5. Water over the plant in sun before pesticide spray as they love moisture.
6. Spray pesticide regularly after every 15 days.
7. In summers give only 3 to 4 hours sunlight.

Well I am not fertilizing too but recommended for good harvest. In Islamabad nowadays when I visited there I knew that Islamabad is a beautiful place for all plants.

Sir my mali has sowed Okra seed in an area of some what around 3*3 ft , now the seeds have germinated and the baby plants are some what around 6 to 7 inches high but are dangerously close to each other, after reading your threads about Bhindi, i am daMN sure that the roots might intermingle and that would result in nothing fruitful for me.

So i have decided to move the plants to new better and well spaced location but too scared because these babies are too small now, will they be able to withstand this migration process or not.

INSHA ALLAH today in the morning i will post the pictures of them and will also share the spot where i am planning them to plant.

You can see the bhindi plants are too much close to each other will they arose problems for there own growth??

And are they big enough to transplant into other place??
