Banyan Tree Roots

Banyan Tree Roots

The most outstanding feature of a banyan tree is their aerial roots which appear above the ground. To make banyan trees grow happily and healthy in your garden, you need to provide them adequate space and suitable temperature. If the climate around your zone is not appropriate for growing banyan trees outdoors, you can choose the indoor option. The special thing for this tree species is that their roots will hand down to the ground and build roots on the location it touches the ground. So, it usually appears to have more than one trunk.

Normally, banyan trees need to grow in a place with warm temperature and adequate moisture. Although they can resist a certain level of drought environment, you should satisfy their moisture needs during their growth. They cannot be planted in cold climates and they will be seriously damaged by frost. The grown tree will be very large and it can grow more than 100 feet in height. The canopy will be massive as well so that you should provide adequate space before planting any banyan trees in your garden.

For those who cannot plant banyan trees outside due to the cold weather, growing them indoors is also a good option. You need to change container for every one or two year period. Some pruning work is required to stimulate the growth of new branches. They like to grow in well-drained soil conditions and the soil should be dried out during two consecutive watering processes. You should avoid overwatering them at all times since they leaves will turn yellow if they sit in water for a long time. You should put them in a location with adequate sunlight and temperature should not below 50 degrees in your home.
