The entire order was packaged with such care and obvious love for the plants; thank you. I cherish all of my plants and hold a special place in my heart for the Bodhi tree.

      Hi Danielle, Good, thank you, we have grown these trees in good faith and are relieved when we hear they arrive to someone who appreciates and will take good care of them–they are our babies. I think its true, San Francisco is a good place for growing Bodhi Tree, and they do grow rapidly. As for waiting, well, gardening is all about doing and then waiting. Without the waiting, the plants have no time to grow and prosper! Richo

      Hi Richo. You have just solved a mystery for my brother and I. A few years ago, he was gifted a cutting of a gorgeous plant with heart shaped leaves and an extended pointed tip. We have looked everywhere to find the name of it. It has grown to about four feet tall, and he keeps it indoors year round, in a west facing window. It is a stunner! I am here at your site shopping for my 2021 garden and voila! The mystery of My brother’s tree has been solved, thanks to YOU 🙂
      Thank you so much for offering this beauty- I have added my email address to receive notification of when it can be purchased, I am overjoyed! May you, your family, and your business continue to thrive in abundant health and well-being.

      hi there, the bodhi tree should be protected from frost by bringing in for the winter. if it is planted in the ground, you can dig it up and pot it up and bring it in, or let the weather work on it–if it doesn’t get too cold it will drop leaves and come back from the base in the spring. r

      They are figs–they don’t require much water although they do need to be kept warm and in good light. They grow very slowly and require little care.

  13. Question

    Rosina

    Hi there, I would love a Bodhi tree. I am an experienced gardener, but I would only be able to grow the tree indoors most of the year, as I live in Michigan. How fast does it grow, and how much light will it need?

      Admin Richo Cech

      Hi Rosina,
      These are a reasonable choice for potted culture indoors. For the most part they size themselves to the pot. I have several in 50 gallon drums that are 20 footers, and I have several in gallon pots that are 18 inchers, and they are. . . the same age. They prefer a sunny and warm exposure. Experienced gardeners know how to choose the right site.

      Hello Aj,
      Yes, all the Bodhi trees are nicely sized up and leafed out right now. Yes, we try to put in directions with the shipment saying that the plant should be potted up to a larger pot. Quarts go to gallons, gallons go to 3-gallons.

    Bodhi Tree

    Meri Goswami (verified owner)

    I just ordered a set of three of your Bodhi seedlings and eagerly await their arrival. I also ordered a packet of seeds. I’m curious if the origin of your Bodhi trees are the same as your seeds; “Seed came from progeny produced by the tree under which Buddha obtained enlightenment.“ One of the seedlings I ordered will be given as a gift to a Buddhist friend and am very interested to know. Thank you.

      Sorry to hear about that. for some reason bodhi does attract a lot of pests and it has never made sense to me, what with the seemingly repellent white latex contained in leaf and stem. anyway, yes, guardedly, you can remove all affected leaves EXCEPT the leading tip leaf at apex of plant and it probably will make new leaves and come out of it. spider mites are a pain and can really spread–good VENTILATION is essential. richo

      If I keep the Bodhi tree in the house, how can red spiders find it???? Will washing the Bodhi tree with soapy water remove any pests that find it? I just ordered a Bodhi tree from you. It is hellishly hot here in Houston, Tx , and I hope the heat doesn’t kill the plant in transit to my house.

      Hi Barbara,
      Yes, we just now started up shipping plants again and here at least the temps are very moderate–in the 70’s. We rarely have issues shipping plants, and a bodhi tree is in the very heat-tolerant fig family–it will get to you fine, try not to worry. I do not understand the question–do you want red spiders to find the tree? Do not treat the leaves with soapy water unless there is a problem.

      My Bodhi tree got spider mites too but we set it outside in the summer, sprayed it down with the hose, gently and it really helped. But as soon as we moved it back into our house, the spider mites attacked again. We got a spray to kill spider mites, lost most of its leaves again, but it’s looking a little better sitting in the sunlight all winter. I can’t wait for summer to put it outside again.

      The plants grow continuously and are repotted to larger pots when necessary. Currently 7/24/18 the majority of the stock looks exactly like the opening photo on our website–a 3 inch wide pot with a 5 inch plant, and by the time we start shipping again in September the plants will be significantly larger. We do ship our largest plant first.

      Hello Anndrea, The Bodhi tree leaves are neither poisonous nor tasty–I think it is extremely unlikely that pets or children will want to eat them. They make an exceptional indoor tree and are extremely long-lived and exert a calming influence on the immediate environment. Richo
