Henna is a tall shrub or small tree, standing 1.8 to 7.6 m tall (6 to 25 ft). It is glabrous and multi-branched, with spine-tipped branchlets. The leaves grow opposite each other on the stem. They are glabrous, sub-sessile, elliptical, and lanceolate (long and wider in the middle; average dimensions are 1.5–5.0 cm x 0.5–2 cm or 0.6–2 in x 0.2–0.8 in), acuminate (tapering to a long point), and have depressed veins on the dorsal surface.
Common name: Lawsonia inermis
Color: white or pinkish colour.
Bloom time: winter
Difficulty level: easy to grow
Planting & Care
Prepare the growing surface. Layer several flat paper towels on top of each other. The goal is to create a thick, sturdy cushion that will serve as the seeds’ incubator.
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: below + 5 ° C
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- Add seeds.
- Sprinkle a pinch of seeds down the middle of the moist paper towels.
- Add a generous number of seeds, but don’t overdo it! You should be able to see plenty of white space between the seeds and the paper towels.
- Fold the paper towels in half down the middle with the seeds inside.
- Add water.
- Sprinkle cold water onto the paper towels without saturating them.
- Paper towels should be moist, but solid enough that you can pick them up.
Because the blistering reaction appears 3 to 12 days after the application, most tourists have left and do not return to show how much damage the artist has done. This permits the artists to continue injuring others, unaware they are causing severe injuries. The high profit margins of black henna and the demand for body art that emulates "tribal tattoos" further encourage artists to deny the dangers.
Henna is known to be dangerous to people with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD deficiency), which is more common in males than females. Infants and children of particular ethnic groups, mainly from the Middle East and North Africa, are especially vulnerable
