Plant Bio

Commonly known as Babul or Gum Arabic tree, Acacia Arabica has been recognized worldwide as a multipurpose tree. Though this is a slow - growing species, it is moderately long-lived. The species can withstand extremely dry environments and can endure floods. Acacia nilotica makes a good protective hedge because of its thorns. Acacia nilotica has a wealth of medicinal uses. The Gum Arabic tree is a strong light demander and is intolerant of suppression. It thrives under irrigation.

Acacia is basically a plant-it-and-forget-it type of tree, although a young tree may need protection from wildlife while it develops its defense system. During the first year, the tree benefits from an orchid fertilizer every three to four weeks. After that time, you can feed the tree a general purpose fertilizer once every year, but it isn’t an absolute requirement. Acacia requires little or no water. Acacia requires full sunlight and grows in nearly any type of soil, including sand, clay, or soil that is highly alkaline or acidic. Although acacia prefers well-drained soil, it tolerates muddy soil for short periods of time.
