GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Papayas are not a natural houseplant—which is precisely why you might consider growing them.
  • The plants themselves are beautiful and highly tropical.
  • Papayas feature wide, deeply lobed leaves atop a fleshy trunk.
  • Papaya is a very fast-growing plant, and in nature, it quickly assumes its adult size and bears fruit.
  • Indoors, it won't be practical to grow 15-foot tall papaya to fruiting (and unless you had both male and female plants, it wouldn't be fertilized, so there'd be no fruit anyway).
  • But that doesn't mean you shouldn't grow these fantastical plants.
  • It just means you won't be eating them.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A loose, well-drained, very rich potting mix.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize abundantly.
  • Papayas are very rapidly growing herbaceous plants that consume fertilizer.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Full sun, or as bright as you can provide.
  • Papayas are also a great patio plant for summer climates and will grow very fast.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • As the plant grows, expect to water daily.
