More info

Banyan tree, strangler fig or Ficus benghalensis is a tree native to India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
It is a tree of the Moraceae family.
It is possible with this plant to create magnificent exotic bonsai.
Its seeds are small, the size of those of birch tree.

As it grows, it produces aerial roots hanging from horizontal branches, which form true roots when they touch the ground.
The extent of its roots can create a forest on their own.

As a houseplant, this Ficus likes well-drained, moderately moist soil.
Watering too much, or not enough, will cause the leaves to drop.
Its strangler trees grown outdoors are very resistant to drought and are well suited to the creation of bonsai.

The most favorable time for sowing banyan fig seeds is during the months of June and July.
Prepare a box of fine, previously moistened peat.
Sprinkle the seeds on top without covering them then water gently using a hand sprayer.
Finally, place the culture in a very warm place where the temperature should be at least 35°C.
Germination will generally begin 3 to 6 weeks after sowing.

  • Majestic tropical plant.

  • Produces beautiful bonsai.
  • Relatively easy cultivation.
  • Untreated reproducible seeds.
