Raising bok choy is very easy. Like many Brassicas, it is propagated by seeds. Seeds look like mustard seeds and germinate easily within weeks. Seeds are sown in the first mixture of seeds made using straight cocopeat or cocopeat and compost in equal proportions. The tray is filled with media and then tap slightly to extract air packets. Sow seeds at a rate of 2 per cell and irrigate lightly. Then cover the tray with polythene. Always check for new growth. In about 4 days it will start to appear. When you see a sign of new growth, remove the polythene bag and keep a tray in which it will receive good sunlight.
Bok chok can be planted in an area that receives moderate sunlight. Although they prefer full sun, they also work well in moderate light. Planting:
Bok clearly can be direct or transplanted seeds. In any case, leave 6-8 inches of space between plants. They can be easily planted on trays. Choose 6-8inch depth trays. I planted them wherever I could find a place in my garden. Few in pots, in growing bags and in Hydroponic NFT systems (More about this later). Summary
