Q.Curry Leaf Plant Stem Propagation
Hi, I’ve planted a curry leaf plant stem on 12th April (a month back) and I believe it has successfully rooted and thus showing signs of fresh growth. Although, I’m noticing that along side the 1 leaves stem, there is also a growth of what looks like baby seed pods. I need to understand, if it’s safe to cut off the seed pod stem to enhance plant leaves growth or it’s ok to leave it as it is and it won’t affect the general plant growth. P.S. I think the stem should’ve grown more leaves in a month ?

There is no need to cut it. That is a new baby leaf!
That soil is the reason that it is moving so slowly, though. It needs a potting mix, or seedling mix to form roots properly. Once it is established, it can handle the clay soil, but taking cuttings in it will prove very difficult.
Here is an article that will help you with the care of the plant:
Thanks for the reply. I've shifted the stem into a 3inch growing pot with 50-30-20 mix of soil, coco peat and sand.
I've a few more curry plants and I'm pretty sure the tiny bodies are seed pods, hence I've cut them, leaving just a couple of them to grow further and to be sure for experience.
