  1. Question

    SHWETA KUMARI

    Hello, I am considering buying it. How difficult is it to take care of this plant. If placed in a spot where it can get right amount of sunlight, does it fare well with once a week of care.

      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.

  2. 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?

      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

    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.

      YEs, the seeds and the trees are from the same lineage as the tree under which buddha obtained enlightenment.

  5. Question

    Debbie Gengenbach

    My two-year-old body plant has a bad case of spider mites, can I prune it way back close to the trunk and remove all the leaves and dispose of them or will that kill the plant?

      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.
