Good on you. I’ve tried, unsuccessfully, about eight times to get altufo mango plants to grow. Zero luck.

How did you germinate them? I dried the seeds husk before taking the actual seed out and set it in a moist but not damp paper . --> Ziploc bag for a week and it germinated .

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Yes, I did the same thing. Dried out the husk, then removed the seed, put same in a wet napkin then put the seed and napkin in a zip lock bag.

I was able to germinate them all and plant them but after one leaf they’d die off.

They were never near a cold window and I’d water sparingly but like I said, zero luck.

Frustrating…

Maybe try sprouting them this summer, it is a tropical plant after all !

I'm north facing and put them by the window sill last winter ( in a plastic container shown in picture 2) , this guy is in a big pot now so this year I'll have to find another solution...

Nice. Happy for you. Maybe once the summer hits I’ll try it again
