Planting & Care
The trees should be planted especially on the south and south - west sides of the building. This would give shade during summers. Large growing species are particularly desirable at rearwards.

The period of planting depends upon the species, region, availability of irrigation facilities, rainfall of the region, etc. Winter is the best time for planting deciduous trees as they are dormant at this period and hence less likely to suffer from damage. For evergreen and semi-deciduous trees, rainy season is the best time for planting. Trees may be planted during the following periods:

During Spring: That is January and February. At this time all the factors (especially the temperature), required for tree growth are present. Thus, this is a good time for young saplings to be planted.

At the onset of Monsoons: For most species and most areas, planting is carried out during monsoons. It is advisable to start planting work immediately after a good shower and when the ground is well moistened to the depth of planting. Thereafter any delay should be treated as loss of growing season.

Sunlight: full sunlight

Soil: These plants prefer a fertile, moisture-retentive but well-drained soil.

Water: The tree is fairly resistant to drought and do not require much watering.

Temprature: Mean maximum temperature in the range 30 – 42°c and a mean minimum temperature in the range 7 – 14°c. Plants can experience occasional temperatures down to -2°c in their native range.

Care:
  • They are mainly planted in garden, park and roadsides as ornamental plant in many warm and subtropical regions.
  • Phanera variegata is native to South-east Asia and grows well in tropical and subtropical climate.
  • It grows best at an altitude up to 1,800 metres with a Common in deciduous bamboo forests and open areas.
  • These can be easily propagated from seeds, air layering and cuttings.
  • Tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils but prefers acidic soils.
  • Not salt tolerant.

Use
Medicinal use:
  • Traditionally, the stem bark of Kachnar has been used in Ayurveda to treat diabetes, ulcers and asthma.

  • It has also been used as an anti-inflammatory, hepato-protective and anti-tumor agent.

  • The roots and buds of the tree are used to improve digestion.
  • Recent studies have shown this herb to have valuable hypoglycemic action, supporting this use as an anti-diabetic agent.

  • Some studies have also found Kachnar to possess antibacterial activity.


Note:
Side Effects: Kachnar is safe for general use. However, due to its hypoglycemic action, it should be used with care by persons on anti-diabetic medication.
