  • Okra plant is about 2 meters tall.
  • The leaves are 10 to 20 centimeters long and are broad in size.
  • The flowers have five petals, with yellow-white holding.
  • Okra is the Pentagonal cross-section length.
  • Many seeds are inside the fruit. Ladyfinger is native to Africa and its fruits are fibrous.
LIGHT
  • Pick a spot that receives full sun (at least 5-6 hours of sunlight is essential).
  • Like tomatoes and peppers, okra requires plenty of sunlight to produce well.
SOIL
  • The soil you use must be loamy and crumbly; it must be well-draining too.
  • Opt for a soilless potting mix that is rich in organic matter.
  • You can also add a lot of compost or aged manure to provide the constant supply of nutrients to your okra plant.
WATER
  • Okra requires slightly moist soil.
  • Water regularly to keep the soil uniformly moist and particularly more from the beginning of the flowering period and until the end of production.
FERTILIZER
  • Mix manure in the soil to provide nutrients to the plant, you can also side-dress the plant with it.
  • Also, at the time of planting, you can add balanced fertilizer if you want.
  • Once the plant has reached a height of 6 inches, apply a dose of balanced fertilizer again.
  • Keep in mind that if the soil is nitrogen-rich, it may promote vegetative growth at the expense of fruiting so maintain the balance.
  • Later on, feed the plant with low nitrogen fertilizer such as NPK 5-10-15 or 6-12-12.
