About:

Agarwood, scientifically known as Aquilaria, is a genus of evergreen trees known for the resinous heartwood produced as a response to fungal infection. This heartwood is the source of the highly prized Agarwood, celebrated for its rich, complex aroma. Vermi Organics is dedicated to providing a carefully curated Agarwood plant that encapsulates the essence of this ancient and revered botanical treasure.

Its essential oil is believed to have calming and grounding effects, promoting a sense of tranquility and well-being.

Type of Plant (Outdoor):

Agarwood is predominantly an outdoor plant, thriving in tropical and subtropical climates. It requires warmth, ample sunlight, and well-drained soil for optimal growth. While it can adapt to a variety of soil types, providing a slightly acidic and well-aerated medium enhances its development. Planting Agarwood in outdoor settings allows it to reach its full potential, both in terms of size and resin production.

Care:

Caring for Agarwood involves providing the right environmental conditions to encourage resin formation. Ensure the plant receives plenty of sunlight, preferably in a location with partial shade. Adequate watering is crucial during the growing season, but well-drained soil is essential to prevent waterlogging. Pruning can be done to maintain the desired shape and encourage the development of the resinous heartwood.
