Q.Bodhi Tree Cuttings Problem

Zone bn2 3lb | Casparky added on July 1, 2018 | Answered

Hi there,

I’ve taken cuttings of an indoor Bodhi tree, one started to grow rootes so I planted it in rooting cutting soil and placed by window.

One leaf grew, but as it only gets sunlight in the morning, I made the mistake of moving it!

Now the one leaf it has has wilted and it looks like drying out.


The soil is moist and I’ve moved it back to where it was. I am now aware that moving it was a big mistake.

Any ideas how I can help Bodhi?

Suggestions much apprecaited!

The only thing to be done is to do what you have already done. You may be able to help it along by putting a dome over it to keep the humidity up, but right now it has to repair itself. Anything that you try to give it may kill it at this point.

It will likely recover as long as it remains in a constant environment. This collection of articles will help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/ficus
