It takes 10 days from the formation of flower bud on the branch to full bloom. The flower stays fresh for 4 to 5 days after which it rots and falls to the ground. Then it takes 50 days for new flowers to come on the same branch.

More added that:

It is possible to produce fully grown seedlings by cloning this flower. The flower can be seen to bloom in too cold or too hot. Blooms 3 to 4 times a year. However, if the weather is temperate, flowers bloom 4 to 5 times a year. This flower is cultivated at the gate of the house or on the roof of the house to enhance its beauty.

The leaves are light green in color. The average size of these leaves is 6 inches. The leaves are completely free of odor. These leaves have a somewhat strong and bitter taste. There are no toxic substances in the leaves. Leaves contain chlorophyll, plastids, mineral salts and water. There are 3 to 4 light spots on the surface of the leaf. Which is known as leaf drain. During monsoon it does not allow water to accumulate on the leaves.

But these leaves exist in pairs on each branch. But it is possible to produce new seedlings by cloning these leaves. A new leaf takes 4 days to grow and a mature leaf lives for 12 days. Then these leaves fall from the tree to the ground. These leaves are strong enough when dried in the sun and can be stored for 1 to 2 years. A 2-year-old healthy Combretum indicum has 4 to 5 thousand leaves. And a 4-year-old Combretum indicum has 12 to 15 thousand leaves.


The branches of this flower tree are strong and creeping. The color of the branch looks a bit red. Branches covered with hard sheaths. Inside the cells of green color which cooperates in the exchange of mineral salts and water. A healthy 2-year-old flower plant has 250 to 300 branches and a 4-year-old plant has 400 to 700 branches. It is possible to produce new seedlings by cloning by branching. This branch spreads like a vine and flowers in the foreground.

Tree roots:

The roots become strong, light black-brown in color. Roots do not go deep into the soil but these roots spread far around. A 2-year-old seedling has 300 to 360 roots and a 4-year-old seedling has 400 to 600 roots. Roots stay on the surface of the soil and prevent soil erosion. Although the roots of the sapling are more, the trunk of the sapling is only one.


Flowers drop after pollination. Then a seed of small 2 to 3 grams is seen. The seed turns into 20 grams in 10 days. The seed looks green and looks like Carambola fruit. 15 After drying it turns black-purple in color and the seed stays inside.

2. Stem cuttings is a second process. By cutting plant stem you can propagate this plant.

3. Air layering is a third process. when air blow around, then seeds to here and there then grow new plant.

4. Root suckers is a fourth way to propagate Combretum indicum. After 1 year, you can see little plant around the tree. You can cultivate this plant. It’s called Root suckers process.

5. Clone is a fifth process. It’s a advance technology. Only Biological scientist can do this clone. By clone you can get thousand of plant with in a month from leaves or roots. This is an expensive method.

But a bamboo pole must be given. Water should be sprayed after 2 days. Select a place where the flower tub gets 5 to 8 hours of sun.

2. Fertilizers and Pesticides:

Check the flower tub after 15 days. Seedlings can be attacked by fungi when they are young. Spiders can attack these flowers. So spray the seeds after 1 month. If the seedling is 14 days old, surround the seedling with a net.
