SANDALWOOD - INDIAN

Indian SandalwoodBotanical Name: Santalum album
Description

Medium-sized hemiparasitic trees that attach themselves to the root system of nearby plants from which they extract water and minerals.  Pinto Peanut and Acacia are suitable hosts as they are a legume and hence a natural nitrogen source. Keep Acacias pruned so they dont over take growth of Sandalwood.  Used in the production of sandalwood oil, trees are harvested from 8 years and the entire tree is used for oil production including the roots and stump.  The production of sandalwood in India and Nepal is strictly controlled by the government who owns all the trees, however illegal harvesting and smuggling is a problem due to the high value of sandalwood oil.

Question & Answer

Once you send it in the tube how long can it be kept in the tube before planting? From: Carlingford NSW

You could keep it in the Mega Tube for 1-6 months as long as you water it each day and keep it in a sunny position. When you plant it out you will get faster growth as it's roots are no longer restricted in the pot.
