Similarly, why is Thuja called the Tree of Life?

Thuja, stemming from the classical Latin word “thya” or “thyia” meaning arborvitae or tree of life, was the genus name given to represent a group of evergreen trees in the Cupressaceae (cypress) family. It also represents the tree's tendency to resist rot and live a very, very long life- sometimes up to 800 years!

Similarly, how do you care for a Morpankhi plant?

  1. Soil. Thuja grows in most soil types. But the best soil for it is fertile soil that has ability to retain moisture. It also tolerates very chalky soils.
  2. Watering. Water thuja deeply. Soil around it should be kept moist and covered, constantly, from a mulch of organic material.
  3. Fertilizer.
