Ashok is native to India and Srilanka. Somehow, the name Ashok has stuck in north India, although the "real" Ashok is what is also called Sita Ashok. The weeping, branching habit of this 25-foot tall tree gives it a narrow columnar shape

Common name: Ashok, False Ashok, Mast Tree
Color: green
Bloom time: February to April,
Height: 25-foot
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Use this tree in a humid, shady courtyard garden or mixed tropical forest planting. It may also be grown in a spacious conservatory. The name Ashoka tree honors a king from northern India around 300 B.C. who converted to and spread Buddhism across the region.

Temprature: 17 to 25 °C

Care:
  • Potting soil used for palm plants should be well draining, and any container used for the plant should have ample drainage holes in the bottom.
  • Soil should be moist at all times during the growing season, although it is essential to avoid over-saturation, which can lead to root rot.


Care:
  • Allow the plant soil to dry out a little more in the winter than in the summer.
  • A daily mist of water helps to keep humidity levels high.
  • If frond tips become brown, the humidity is too low.
  • A light fertilizer application from late winter through early fall helps fan palm plants remain vital.


Special Feature:
They grow in clusters from small protuberances all along the dark branchlets. Each flower, borne on a slim, green stem has a tiny calyx and six long, narrow, wavy petals arranged in two sets of three.
Use
Medicinal use:
  • Unverified information As one would expect from a tree of the country it has many useful medicinal properties.
  • The juice obtained from boiling the bark is a cure for some ailments of women, and a pulp of the blossoms is one of the remedies used for dysentery.


Note:
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
