Description

Ficus Benghalensis
Also known as: Banyan, Bengal Fig, East Indian Fig

This is a very popular choice for a decorative and functional indoor plant and it's one plant that can remain indoors all year long. It has a reputation for being particularly versatile in the art of bonsai because it responds very well to pruning and can handle being root bound.

Native to India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka and commonly found in rain forests because the humid and spacious environment is the ideal location for the ficus to thrive. Like most other fig tree species, the Ficus benghalensis is a humongous tree out in the wild and needs a lot of space to grow. Banyan starts out life as an epiphyte growing on another tree where fig-eating birds deposit the seed. As it grows, banyan produces aerial roots that hang down from horizontal branches and take root where they touch the ground. These vertical "prop roots" can create a forest on their own. Banyan can get 100' tall and, with its massive limbs supported by prop roots, spread over an area of several acres. A famous banyan tree near Poona, India, is said to measure a half mile around its perimeter and is capable of sheltering 2000 people.
This species produces large, bright green, oval-shaped leaves that may grow in a twisted or cupped shape, although not all of the leaves will grow in this fashion. The clean-cut leaves add a very classy look to a room, plus they also throw off a lot of oxygen which can improve the quality of the air in your home.The figs are scarlet red, about a half-inch in diameter, and not particularly tasty.

The species is grown for soil conservation, fodder, paper pulp, and it's timber is used for furniture. It has many medicinal Uses and properties as it is an astringent to bowels; useful in treatment of biliousness, ulcers, erysipelas, vomiting, fever, inflammations, leprosy. It is also said that its latex is an aphrodisiac, tonic, vulernary, maturant, lessens inflammations; useful in piles, nose-diseases, gonorrhea etc. The aerial root is styptic, useful in syphilis, biliousness, dysentery, inflammation of liver etc.

USDA Zones 10 - 12. Banyan is damaged by frost but will recover from brief periods of freezing weather.

This offer is for 1 pack of seeds shown in the last photo.
*Seeds are small and 1 pack may contain approximately 100+ seeds.

Shipped fine. I can't get the seeds to sprout. This is the second time I tried. None of the first ones sprouted either.
