Do you know where did this Rudraksh garland come from? In the ripe stage of Rudraksha, the seeds of Rudraksha are covered from outside with greenish-blue outer fruits.

Here’s how you can grow them at home with easy steps:

A special feature of the plant is that it can produce a large number of saplings from a single Rudraksha plant, which are easily available in local nurseries. To grow these plants, follow these simple steps.

Step 1:
The primary step is to peel off the skin from a 2-inch area on the bark. So, first and foremost, cut down the plant. For ideal results the cut should be made a few centimeters below the nodal area of ​​the plant. Use a sharp knife to make the cut. It is expected that there will be a new development in this area. For this, make two round cuts within a distance of 2 inches from each other. Make a slit between them to make it easier to peel the skin off your nails.

Step 2:
Then scratch the bark a few times. Plants are actively regenerated due to scratches on the stem, thereby accelerating the process of plant growth.

Step 3:
The next step is the air layering process. For this you will need moss balls. They should be covered in cinnamon powder or honey and immersed in water for a few hours. After that, each ball will be used to create a single air layering. This is one of the most important parts of the process, keeping the plant from drying out.

Step 4:
Then a moss ball is used to cover the skinned bark below the nodal area. Then, a square plastic sheet is placed over the ball. A jute or plastic string can be used to wrap the sheet around the ball and tighten it.

That’s all there is to it for the plant to grow and thrive. The Rudraksha stems will sprout new life very soon.

Leave the plastic cover untouched for a period of three to seven weeks. This will allow the roots to emerge from the air layering. When done, it is time to cut down the tree and transplant it. The moss ball coiled around the bark is delicate and should be handled with care.

After carefully opening, the plants will be ready to be transplanted into a pot. Determine pot size by looking at the height of your plant. It is generally recommended to give a pot half the height of the plant enough room to grow and flourish.

After the Rudraksha plant has developed, it should be kept in open sunlight, as this is where it grows best.

In a matter of a year, the native plant turns into a fully grown tree, ready for its seeds.
