Acholia (pronounced ah-lair-ah) is a deciduous vine that primarily grows in India and Sri Lanka. The name comes from the Greek word for leaf (akla) and to meditate on (a). The acacia tree was named after the place where it was found: the Acropolis of the Lydian capital, Pella. It was probably brought from Greece by traders and travelers who sought to cure ailments associated with the climate of Asia Minor.
The schema flower has three floral parts: the stamens, which are used to produce the fragrance; the pistils, which are utilized to secrete the oil. When the stamen is cooked, it releases a flavor in the aroma that is like cherry juice. The flower contains many different scents, all of which have been known: sweet, fruity, floral, oriental, pine, hay and others. Each member of the class has its own unique smell. However, when a single compound is isolated from a batch of acholia flowers, it is called a specific scent.
Growing acholia trees is a laborious task: the root ball must be dug up and transplanted to a suitable location. It is best to plant them in pots; this guarantees that they grow into healthy plants. If you are growing acholia in your home garden, you must make sure that you have good soil and the correct amount of sunlight for successful growth. When the flowers appear, they will be covered with a whitish powder.
Acholis are very easy to maintain: the main requirement is regular watering. However, the flowers are very sensitive to poor weather conditions. It is not a bad idea to relocate the acholia tree to a sheltered area or location with a milder temperature; if the flowers become stressed, it can result in loss of their flowers. The tree will re-flower and sprout new flowers in two to three weeks. You do not need to water the flowers as often as you would other trees; they prefer a dry climate with no excessive rainfall. They will tolerate some pruning as well; however, the overall health of the plant will be affected if too much of this is done.
It is a good idea to train an achid tree. This can be achieved by pruning but is best carried out before the flowers open. In this way, you will ensure that they will all do well together, and there are less chances of one tree dominating the entire plant. Pruning young shoots as well as the base will encourage healthy growth. Do not let acholia flowers grow too high, because the leaves may block the view of the flower, and they will be wasted.
The leaves will die back once the flower buds have opened, and the new growth starts. New growth will be covered by the fallen leaves and after flowering the acholia trees will need to be weeded out. If a single acholia tree is overgrown, it can easily spread to form a whole garden. This is why it is a good idea to only plant acholia trees in pots, and never on the ground. The best place to grow acholia trees is in potting mix, and they will do well there.
When growing acholia trees, you will also need to protect them from pests and disease. Aphids can be a problem when growing acholia trees, and they usually feed off the acholia flowers. This can be a real problem when trying to grow acholia trees with a natural means. To prevent this, plant a wide variety of weeds such as lettuce, dandelions or crabgrass on the acholia tree. You may also need to use some organic insecticides to control aphid infestations.
Finally, acholia trees are very susceptible to damage from wind and water. For this reason, it is not recommended to grow a tree inside your home. The strong winds can actually crack acholia wood and damage the tree. Water can also dry out acholia tree roots, so be sure to prune your tree regularly. You can protect acholia from damage by providing protective cover during dry days.
