Light

Young mango tree seedlings require bright light but not direct sunlight. Once the tree starts to grow and mature, it requires as much sunlight as possible, including moving a potted tree outdoors.​ The mango tree needs at least six hours of sun per day and preferably eight to ten hours. It's best if you can place it in a south-facing area. In the winter, you might need to provide a grow light.

Soil

A rich, peat-based potting soil with excellent drainage is ideal. If you are planting your mango tree in the garden, make sure it is planted in soil that dries out slightly between waterings.

Water

Water regularly, several times a week in dry weather, but do not let the tree sit with wet feet in soggy soil. The mango tree, like many tropical fruit trees, thrives in periods of alternating wet and dry. Seeds require regular moisture to sprout.

Temperature and Humidity

Mango trees prefer humidity above 50 percent, so mist your tree daily. Keep your tree as warm as possible and always above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Mango trees cannot tolerate freezing, and even at 40 degrees, flowers and fruit will drop. A mango tree can be grown outdoors in a garden in very warm climates where the average temperature is 80 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. If your summers are warm enough, you can move your indoor mango tree outdoors for the season.
