Our Nepal Farms

How we grow Rudraksha in our Farms

First we place a seed on a hard surface, take a 3 inch steel nail and place the pointed tip into the large hole of the seed and with a hammer give the nail a sharp tap. Strike it hard enough to fracture the seedpod but not enough to cause the seedpod to fly apart in separate pieces. This "cracking" of the seedpod will grant the seeds inside the chance they need to get to the soil. If you look at the cracked seedpod you should be able to spot the various sees still within. After the cracking is done simply plant the seed and in no time you will have seedlings pushing up into the sunlight. Prick out individual seedlings and repot them,

Further, Put down an inch of sand on the plastic. Sprinkle the rudraksha beads on the sand and then cover them with a layer of sand at least 1/2 inch deep. Keep the sand moist. Once a sprouted "tree" is about 3 inches tall you can gently lift it (and the bead from which it is sprouting) out of the sand by lifting on the stem below the leaves. The roots will not be injured in this process as the sand will give way quite easily as the seeding is lifted. Then you can re-pot this little seeding in a half gallon pot. (Larger pots would be better)

It will take a couple of years for the seedlings to reach a hardy planting stage. For the first couple of years watch that the roots don't get root bound in too small of a pot. Be aware that the trees will recover though if they do get rootbound. They are really hardy once they get to be about 2 feet tall. They will even rebound if you "forget" to water them and all the leaves dry up and fall off. As for planting the trees. We ensure that we have a 30 by 30 foot square plot dedicated to the tree. When it is mature it will be 30 to 60 feet tall and the roots will form a buttress like function. They will be lifted out of the ground around the base of the tree. If the soil is poor or there are many trees planted close together this buttressing effect will prevent a lawn mower from being used under the tree. The trees have an unusual way of dropping its lower branches after all the leaves on the branch have turned bright red.

These rudraksha are grown in Green house the Greenhouses allow you to control the temperature and humidity, a manipulation that allows you to grow rudraksha year round. In these closed microcosm, you can mimic the climate of any section of the world. You also have more control of the climate, leading to better crops.
