Ficus religiosa seed
Ficus religiosa is also known as the Bhodi, or the sacred fig, Ficus religiosa trees are often grown as ornamentals, as Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment while sitting under one. The trees feature oversized, intertwined root systems that are partially visible above ground. The leaves of this tree move continuously even when the air around is still and no perceptible wind is blowing, owing to the long leaf stalk and broad leaf structure. These distinctive trees are grown as potted miniatures or raised to full outdoor size in warm-climate regions. They prefer full sunlight and can grow in most soil types. When planting, use soil with a pH of 7 or below. It is possible for the plant to grow indoors in a pot.
Germination: Sprinkle Ficus religiosa seeds on top of the soil. Lightly sprinkle sand over them, but don’t cover the seeds. Put a translucent plastic lid over the tray. Place the tray in strong light, but keep it out of direct sunlight. Keep the temperature at 77 degrees F. Take the lids off daily to allow oxygen to reach the seeds. Use a spray bottle to mist the pots if they start to dry out. Keep the dirt damp for 15 to 90 days until you see the seedlings appear.
