Although curry plants are common in many home gardens in Sri Lanka, there is a high demand for curry leaves in the market. We can easily plant these plants. Curry tree is mainly propagated by seeds. We can easily make successful curry plants by removing the fleshy parts of the ripe seeds that grow here and planting the seeds in a sand nursery.
In addition, we can get mature curry plants by planting slightly mature stems and root cutting, as well as rooted seeding. By planting the curry seeding in a well-lit place, we can eradicate the fungal diseases of the leaves. Pruning can also increase the number of branches and leaves.
