Growing a Banyan Tree

A banyan tree makes a great statement, provided that you have enough space in your yard and the appropriate climate. Otherwise, this interesting tree should be grown indoors. Read on to learn more.


Banyan Tree Info

The Banyan (Ficus benghalensis) is a fig tree that begins life as an epiphyte, germinating in the crevices of a host tree or other structure. As it grows, the banyan tree produces aerial roots that hang down and take root wherever they touch the ground. These thick roots actually make the tree appear to have several trunks.
Growing a Banyan Tree Outdoors

On average, these trees have high moisture needs; however, established trees are drought tolerant. They enjoy sun to partial shade as well. Banyan trees are easily damaged by frost and are, therefore, best grown in warmer climates such as those found in USDA plant hardiness zones 10-12. Growing a banyan tree requires a lot of space, as mature trees become quite large. This tree should not be planted near foundations, driveways, streets or even your home, as its canopy alone can spread quite far. In fact, a banyan tree can get up to about 100 feet tall and spread over several acres. The leaves of banyan trees can reach anywhere from 5-10 inches in size. One of the largest banyan trees on record is in Calcutta, India. Its canopy covers 420 meters and stands over 80 feet tall, with more than 2,000 roots.
Banyan Tree Houseplant

Banyan trees are commonly grown as houseplants and are well adapted to indoor environments. Although the banyan tree is better somewhat pot bound, it’s a good idea to repot this plant at least every two to three years. The shoot tips can be pinched back to promote branching and help control size. As a houseplant, banyan trees prefer well-drained but moderately moist soil. The soil should be allowed to dry out between waterings, at which time it needs to be thoroughly saturated. However, caution should be taken to ensure that it doesn’t sit in water; otherwise, leaves may yellow and drop. Provide the banyan tree with moderately bright light and maintain indoor temperatures around 70 F. (21 C.) during summer and at least 55-65 F. (10-18 C.) throughout winter.
Propagating Banyan Trees

Banyan trees can be propagated from softwood cuttings or seeds. Cuttings can be taken from the tips and rooted or by eye cuttings, which require a piece of stem about a half inch below and above a leaf. Insert cuttings into a suitable rooting medium, and within a couple of weeks, roots (or shoots) should begin to develop. As parts of the banyan tree plant are poisonous (if ingested), caution should be used while handling it, as sensitive individuals may be susceptible to skin irritations or allergic reactions.
If choosing to grow banyan from seed, allow seedheads to dry on the plant before collecting. Keep in mind, however, that a growing banyan tree from seed can take some time.
