(4 customer reviews)

$4.95

Tropical tree native to India.  Seed came from progeny produced by the tree under which Buddha obtained enlightenment.  Very rare.  Correctly identified (see leaf form).  Robust plant is an excellent potted plant for indoors.  Needs bright light, warmth. They are a fine find for blessing your tropical, greenhouse, or sunroom garden. Sow seed warm and in the light.  Barely cover with soil and tamp securely.  Greenhouse or light room best.  Seedlings actually do develop quite quickly into sturdy saplings.  Keep as a potted plant or plant outdoors in the tropics.

  1. Question

    CJ

    I am specifically interested in these so I have a few questions. Will they be available September 1st? Also, other than the very similar shape in the leaves is there any other proof you have that they are truly from the same lineage as the tree Buddha reached enlightenment under? If so, how are you able to obtain so many of them and where? Seems kind of hard to believe that you would sell 100 of them at a time for the great price of $3.95 being as they are considered very rare. Granted, I did see other websites selling Ficus Religiosa seeds in packs of 100 for about half of your price but they were not making the same claim as you are. If they truly are I will be the first purchaser once they are available. I await your response, thank you.

      Hello, yes, we have these in stock, they are from progeny of the original tree, and they can be purchased currently through mailorder or you can wait for the website to open up again Sep 1 and order that way.

    Every Seed Must Have Sprouted

    Wow. I thought I’d have trouble with these so I planted the whole packet. I had so many I had to sell and give away a lot by fall. Haha. Very nice plants and if you forget to water them sometimes they come right back lol.

    Easy to germinate

    I had good luck sprouting these. They took a little while, but grew rapidly once they finally emerged. I gave most of the seedlings away but one that I kept is about 16” tall and seems healthy. This one plant is well worth the cost of the seed pack, and I still have about 90 seeds left.

      I thought the leaves of this fig tree where Buddha sat for 49 days was shaped like a heart, these look like a normal leaf.

      If you check the gallery there is a leaf from the original bodhi tree (decorated) and it is the same shape as the bodhi tree picture we have posted, which is a tree grown from our seeds.
