Planting & Care
Pterocarpus santalinus, Red Sanders or Red Sandalwood is a species of Pterocarpus native to India. It is found in south India in Kadapa, Chittoor, mostly in the hilly region of Nepal, in Pakistan and in Sri Lanka. It is fast-growing when young, reaching 5 m tall in three years even on degraded soils. It is not frost tolerant, being killed by low temperatures.

Sunlight: Full Sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Temprature: 12° and 30°C.

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • Sandal trees grow mainly on red ferregenuous loam, overlying metamorphic rocks, chiefly gneiss.
  • They can tolerate shallow, rocky ground and stony or gravelly soils, voiding saline or calcareous soils, and are not exacting about the depth of the soil.

  • Rich and moist soils such as well-drained alluvial soils, do not support sandalwood well; the heartwood in such trees will be deficient in oil.
  • Trees grown on poor soils yield better oil, though they cannot withstand water-logging.


Use
Medicinal use:

 

  • A red powder made from the wood is also used as an antiseptic paste.
  • In Ancient Indian medicine, the ground seeds are used to treat boils and inflammations.
  • A decoction of the leaves is used to treat gout and rheumatism.
  • The bark was used to wash hair.


Culinary use:

 

 

  • leaves


Ornamental use:
