Jatropha curcas is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae, that is native to the American tropics, most likely Mexico and Central America.

Common name: Juglans cinerea
Color: green
Bloom time: May to June
Height: 40.00 to 60.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
They are usually shipped in the spring as bare roots when plants are fully dormant, well before they have leafed out. They’ll look like a bundle of sticks on arrival. Note, they are not dead—simply dormant.If you are buying container-grown plants (vs. bare-root plants), plant them by May or early June for best results.

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 10.5 C

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking.
  • Also, deep planting keeps Bangada bulbs cool when temperatures soar.
  • Enrich the soil with leaf mold or well-rotted organic matter to encourage good drainage.


Care:
  • To help conserve water, reduce stress, and encourage healthy growth, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of chopped and shredded leaves, grass clippings, or shredded bark around the base of your plants.
  • Allow about an inch of space between the mulch and the base stem of the plant.


Special Feature:
Butternut is of interest to native plant enthusiasts and for those who wish to harvest the nuts. It is otherwise infrequently planted as an ornamental tree.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • Raising Jatropha is easy.
  • It keeps producing seeds for many years.
  • In the recent years, Jatropha has become famous primarily for the production of biodiesel; besides this it has several medicinal applications, too.
  • Most parts of this plant are used for the treatment of various human and veterinary ailments.
