Banyan tree planted in the tropics (Bailey and Bailey 1976). The banyan tree is the largest tree in the world by itself and tree width (Riffle 1998) with some tree that can cover an area of several thousand square meters. This tree has colored fruits and aerial roots dracaena grows from the tree crashed to the ground.
Banyan tree can thrive in areas where development creatures that pollinate it wasps (Eupristina masoni) (in Nadel 1991) are present. Banyan trees can also develop through techniques such as asexual or sexual extract stem. It can start life epigenetic on other plants.
Banyan tree can disperse through some birds such as the flute-brown fruit (acridotheres tristis), some species such as zebra dove dove (geopelia striata) or neck doves (Streptopelia chinensis) and sparrow (Passer domesticus).
Origins: According to Neal (1965), the banyan tree originating from India, it habitable for up to about 600 m elevation (2,000 ft), especially in the dry area. According Riffle (1998), the banyan tree has roots in a vast region of Asia, from India to Myanmar, Thailand, Southeast Asia, southern China and Malaysia.
Global Allocation: The banyan tree is grown throughout the tropics and grows wild in much of the humid tropics on Earth (Riffle, 1998).
In the US, it’s in Miami (Florida), Hawaii. Banyan tree first planted in the US was Edison in Fort Myers (Florida).
In Australia, it is found growing wild in northeastern and central Queensland (Chew 1989, PIER 2000). PIER (2000) also announced that it is grown in Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Fiji, French Polynesia and Kiribati.
How to care for ornamental banyan tree:
Repot the majority: The 2-3 year in late spring – when the temperature at about 68oF (20oC) – With a mixture of 60% soil, 10% peat and 30% sand to.
Pruning and bracing wires for banyan tree: The top part of the tree cut down at the same time to repot first and pruning the root system. In temperate climates, then these operations should be done step by step, preserving the tree for at least a month after repotting. Making thick and dense foliage shaped by pruning the shoots leaving only 2 leaves in late spring to summer. Teaching jobs can be done in any season, but at least three months after repotting. Preserved section of bark.
Banyan tree fertilizing: How to 20-30 days from spring until autumn, and how every 40-60 days at other times of the year.
Note: The banyan tree has high sensitivity to unexpected changes in temperature that it can make the leaves fall off. In winter keep the tree in a bright, warm or in the greenhouse. If indoors, you should spray the leaves every day at least once in temperate countries. Watering when the soil dries out somewhat.
