(Indian bdellium tree, gugal, guggul, gugul, Mukul myrrh Tree, Commiphora mukul) Shrub to small tree to 12 feet tall, native to India, extending also into North Africa and central Asia. Traditional usage (Ayurveda): obesity, urinary infection, antiseptic. Source of gum guggul, an oleo/gum/resin that has a myrrh-like aroma. The tree is quite growable in indoor potted culture and responds well to cactus mix and occasional watering, a light window. Plant prefers full sun, heat and dryish, very fast draining soils. Nick seed with a blade and sow about 1/2 inch deep in cactus mix and keep very warm until germination. Water occasionally. Planting in a warm greenhouse we noted germination in 18 days. Take care not to overwater seedlings in order to avoid damping off. Transplant and grow on in pots.
