Inspecting Kratom Seed Pods off a Kratom Tree
Inspecting Kratom Seed Pods off a Kratom Tree – Fresh and ripe Kratom seed are grown for 6 – 10 year old Organic American grown Kratom trees. The growers have acclimated the trees to the gulf region. Growing instructions, and support are included for those in all environments. Below is a link to our American Kratom seed pod dissection. Youtube
How do you collect Kratom Seed Pods?
Inspecting and Removing Mature Kratom Seed Pods off a Kratom Tree – Kratrom trees take years to mature. Because of this they can be quite tall making them hard to reach. A single kratom tree can grow to over two hundred foot tall. Our dedicated team have had to make choices on the most efficient and effective way to bring them down. A big factor that plays out over time is how we grow the trees. If we top our taller trees they will start to bush out more near the bottom. However some of our trees are too tall to reach with a ladder. We have built a Kratom Seed Pod collector for this purpose.
Kratom Seed Pod Fertilization
Kratom seed pods from the nursery are confirmed to have at least 60% fertilization. One can assess this by the projections (pods) erupting from the circular flower bulb. These continue to grow until they are mature. Once kratom seed pods are ready to release seed, the kratom seed pod husk bursts open. Kratom seed are quite small and light. The seed will blow all over out of the kratom trees.
Inspecting and Removing Mature Kratom Seed Pods off a Kratom Tree – Bees and other insects are attracted to the pungent sweet smell of the kratom seed pods as they develop on the kratom trees. For that reason bees rub themselves on the stems of the exposed seed pods as they travel around the seed pod collecting the pollen in their fur as they go. While they travel from kratom tree to kratom tree the collected pollen rubs off onto the other seed pods that the bees land on. As a result this fertilizes the kratom seed pods.
On the other hand, each seed pods is to hand fertilize by staff. As well, a staff member will climb up on the ladder and grab what ever seed pods are close and rub them against each other. Turning them and spinning them in our hands to get the maximum effect. This ensures the viability of the seed pod.
How to tell a fertile seed pod?
Inspecting and Removing Mature Kratom Seed Pods off a Kratom Tree – Each Kratom seed pods also have very distinct difference between a fertile seed pod and a inftertile pod. Fertile kratom seed pods will be plump in contrast to infertile pod that are smooth and round. For that reason, make sure to be careful if you want a full pod to stay intact as they break apart from the center very easily. Most notably, this video shows every stage of a kratom seed pod.
Lastly, a infertile kratom seed pods are completely round and are very very tiny. They will almost look like a honeycomb in a ball. Infertile kratom seed pods are very soft and will roll around in the hand. In contrast, there is not much that can be done with these pods. Here is a short video to show you what they look like.
How to sprout Kratom Seed Pod! And answering commonly asked questions!
If this is your first time growing from kratom seed our team recommends you spend a few minuets to watch this educational video. These seed pods were planted in March 2019 – June 2019 kept outdoors in very hot and humid conditions while being covered in clear plastic wrap.
Kratom Watchdog Android & IOS
Have you heard of the Kratom Watchdog app? Kratom Watchdog is a kratom social network built from the ground up by one of the founding member of the non-profit American Kratom Association (AKA). A booming social community with a focus on kratom advocacy. Kratom Watchdog is the oldest kratom social media platform online. With over 400 videos and over 200,000 photo’s from our own kratom Nursery. And 7,000 members we have a very strong growers community that are always willing to help. Kratom Watchdog is available on Android, IOS, and at kratomwatchdog.com. We are a small self funded development studio. If you would like to donate to the development of the platform we would appreciate it. Thank you for your continued support.
3D Drone Mapping American Kratom Nursery’s
Taking to the sky! Utilizing drones, we are able to document our American kratom nursery’s from a different angle. These drones are able to 3D map our kratom nursery using a technology called LIDAR. Applying these 3D models into our Kratom Avatar Chat Kynto. Our goal is to map out our entire nursery and insert the nursery into the world for users to interact with these trees. Allowing them to take guided or self guided tours. The cool part, is that we can then translate that information into virtual reality (VR). Available on the PlayStation VR, Oculus Platforms, and Google Cardboard.
We will be opening up our tools and software to allow other nurseries and growers to map out their kratom nursery. Interested in having us out to document your nursery? Contact us here or contact us on the Kratom Watchdog app.
