      Hello Yaaminy, The henna is a tropical tree and needs plenty of warmth, strong light and a dry substrate. It is not recommended for winter growing in Colorado unless you have a heated tropical greenhouse with lights. Under the right conditions they are fast-growing. Our spring-planted population is already 18 inches tall. richo

    Aloha, I received 4 plants on this day and the 5th one had came the next day, the picture shows how they came nice and secure and healthy and all 5 are doing well in this beautiful Hawaiian sun, I am eager to order more before they all sold out. Mahalo for having these plants, it was hard to find a company that would deliver to Hawaii, but you all did and your awesome.

      hi DareRia, Those are my babies and I am pretty stoked they’ll be in Hawaii because I know they will get big there, and you’ll be able to use them. Please let me know when they make seeds! Richo

    I got a henna plant from you and it came very well. I repotted it. However, I think I overwatered it and all leaves fell but new leaves are coming up. I want to know how much water should I be giving this plant because I’m worried of overwater or underwater it.. thanks in advance

      hello, henna is a plant of dry environments. provide very fast-draining soil and water only after the soil surface becomes dust dry. richo
