Q.How Long Will It Take My Single Oregano Shoot To Self-propagate?

Zone Semi-arid | Kaifa added on August 12, 2020 | Answered

Anazingly a single oregano seed ‘took root’ out of a packet and has now grown to about 2 1/2 inches but is rather delicate. The soil drains well and the plant gets plenty of indirect sun (over 8 hrs) on windowsill. What can I do to encourage its growth (safely!)? I understand that it can take upto 2 years for the shoots to be ready to harvest when grown from seed! Thank you so much for your help. If my query helps other growers I’m more than happy!

You can start harvesting when the plant is 4 to 6 inches (10-15 cm.) tall so you are almost there! If you can give the plant some direct sun outside it will probably grow faster. It doesn't need fertilizer. Water when the soil is dry till established.
