Grow the banyan tree in an area that is large enough to accommodate its eventual size – up to 100 feet in height with a spread that may take up several acres. As a houseplant, place the banyan tree in an area with partial shade or in bright light. Choose one or the other and then don’t move it or it may end up dropping its leaves.
Fertilize the banyan tree with a balanced fertilizer – such as 20-20-20 -- in the spring. Spread the fertilizer 1 foot beyond the tree’s drip line and spread it completely around it. When growing indoors, wait until you see new growth in the spring and apply a liquid 10-10-10 fertilizer, diluted to half the manufacturer’s suggested strength. Repeat the application every two weeks during the growing season and once a month in winter.
Keep the indoor-grown banyan tree in an area where the temperature remains between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and no cooler than 55 degrees in the winter.
Water the mature outdoor banyan tree only during prolonged periods of drought. Indoors, let the soil dry out and then place the plant under the faucet, turn it on to a steady drip, and saturate the soil. Another way to ensure that the soil is evenly saturated is to place the pot in a shallow pan of water. Add more water to the pan as the soil absorbs it, until the top of the soil is wet.
Provide humidity for the indoor banyan tree by filling a shallow pan with small rocks and pouring in water until it is half full. Place the pot on top of the stones.
Transplant the potted banyan tree every three years. Trim off one-third of its roots before repotting and plant it in a mixture of 30 percent of each of the following: decomposed granite, agricultural pumice and organic matter. The remaining 10 percent should be coarse sand. Trimming the roots helps keep the banyan from growing too large too quickly. Wait until the weather is warm to repot.
