Banyan Tree Seeds (Ficus benghalensis)

Price for Package of 10 seeds.

This is a tropical tree from Asia, in particular India and can grow to immense sizes in its wild state. It is one of the group of strangler figs, where it starts its life deposited on a branch or trunk of a tree by a fig eating bird. The seed rapidly germinates and it starts its life as an epiphyte. It sends out roots that, when they reach the soil below, completely change the nature of the small plant. Boosted by the extra nourishment, it rapidly grows and entwines its host, effectively strangling the very life from it. Eventually the host tree dies and the Banyan is left in its place. By means of aerial roots it forms huge buttressed trunks and can cover an area of 100's of square metres.
Capable of growing to over 150 feet tall or more with a spread of 200 - 300 feet or so, this has the potential to become a truly monstrous tree. Pot culture and pruning will keep its size down to more manageable proportions and it does not resent such treatment and will thrive in all sorts of conditions. A tropical tree it is hardy to Zone 11 and is suitable for growing as pot plant or bonsai specimen. It makes an ideal indoor bonsai for those of you looking for a true permanent indoor specimen.
