Bodhi tree / Sacred Fig
The Bodhi tree can reach a height of 30 meters in nature, with a trunk diameter of three meters, but can also be kept as humble houseplant or bonsai.
The tree originates from India and is sacred to Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
In Hinduism, sadhus meditate under the tree and host religious dances around it. In Buddhism it is believed that Buddha experienced his enlightenment under this tree. The original site of this is Bodh Gaya, but the original tree has since then disappeared.
However, an original branch of the tree is planted in Sri Lanka and still lives there, and therefore currently is the oldest living plant flower in the world. The tree is called Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi and is planted in 288 BC.
Sow the tiny seeds on the surface of sowing mix and keep the soil constantly moist. Let them germinate at 25-30 degC on a bright spot.
All year round.
