Cultivation of ulkata - Polyalthia longifolia (Sonn.) Thwaites

ulkata :

Polyalthia longifolia


It performs best on sites with full to partial sun exposure and on rich, free-draining clay-loam, loam, sandy-loam and loamy-sand soils of a slightly acid to neutral nature, generally with a pH of 5.5 to 7.5. Young plants need protection from winds, especially under hot, dry conditions but once established have good tolerance to drought.


It  is generally  propagated  through seeds,  but  occasionally  through  soft wood  cuttings and air layering


Most germinate within two to three weeks and the young seedlings cared for in a nursery for around a year before being planted out. Care should be taken when transplanting to not damage the delicate roots.
