Description

Ficus altissima Council Tree False Banyan NOTE: Seeds are Super Tiny False Banyan is a massive tree of the jungle, but grown as a container or tropical plant it can be one of the most beautiful & rare varieties grown. in its native habitat the tree starts out life as an epiphyte, or "air pant" growing on another tree, usually a lagerstromia, where a fig eating bird deposits a seed. As it grows, it produces roots that hang down from the branches. They in turn root right where they touch the ground creating a forest of their own. in its native habitat this tree can grow 100' tall & spread over an area of several acres. Large, forest green, leathery leaves are like those of the fig called "rubber tree" Ficus elastica, often found as a tropical plant everywhere. Can be planted as a standard in warm regions & will usuall grow to about 30 feet. There is really no such thing as a "houseplant," since all plants originate from somewhere outdoors, especially the tropics, hence the term "tropical plant." The banyan tree is one plant that can remain indoors all year long & grow very well as a houseplant. Repot every 2-3 years, but like the rubber plant, banyan is best kept a little on the pot-bound side. The shoot tips can be pinched back to promote branching. Keep in half shade or moderately bright light. If growing outdoors, keep in the shade. The tree is somewhat drought tolerant once established, but does thrives in well-drained soil & moderate moisture. (Let dry out between waterings – then soak down thoroughly) If leaves yellow – under watering or overwatering has taken place. =====Seed is a live perishable product = All sales Final- The pictures are representative only - seeds are exactly as described here produced by professional growers Research if needed prior to purchase -Its up to you to AVOID disappointments & misunderstandings by reading the listing - provided growing instructions/label - & having proper expectations as well as understanding germination time frame.
