    Plant Description:

    Terminalia benzoe, also known as benzoin, is a species of tree native to tropical regions of Southeast Asia. The tree can grow up to 30 meters tall and has a thick, evergreen canopy. The leaves are large and glossy, and the tree produces small, greenish-white flowers. The tree is also known for its resin, which is used in traditional medicine and as a fragrance ingredient in perfumes and incense. The resin is obtained by making small cuts in the tree's bark, allowing the resin to bleed out and harden. The resin is then harvested and processed for various uses.

    Growing tips:

    Terminalia benzoe is a relatively hardy tree that can grow in a wide range of conditions, but it prefers well-drained, sandy soils and a tropical or subtropical climate with high humidity. It can tolerate some drought, but it should be watered regularly to ensure healthy growth.

    The tree prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. It should be protected from strong winds, which can damage the branches and foliage.

    Fertilize the tree with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season, and prune it regularly to maintain its shape and promote healthy growth.

    Pest and disease are not common in this tree, but it may be prone to infestations of pests such as scale insects and whiteflies. If you notice pests on your tree, you can treat them with a pesticide or try using a natural solution such as horticultural oil or neem oil.

    Overall, Terminalia benzoe is a relatively low-maintenance tree that can be grown in a variety of conditions, with regular watering and fertilizing and pruning to maintain its shape.
