Henna Cutting (Lawsonia inermis) - 3 cutting

RM 6.00

This item is for  6 inches - 3 unrooted cuttings of Henna stem

Easy to grow what you need  is plant small branches in small pot with soil that combine equal quantities of sand and peat moss to form a rooting soil. Water the soil in the pots so it is moist but not soaked,  it will grow.

Transplant each cutting when the roots fill the small pot, to a 1 gallon grow-out pot filled with potting soil. Place the rooted cuttings outdoors to harden off in a well-lit area. Continue to water the cuttings.

Transplant the Henna saplings into a sunny area, protected from wind, when they reach 2 to 3 feet in height. Continue to water the saplings until they become well established.

The English name "henna" comes from the Arabic ???????‎ :?innā?; The name henna also refers to the dye prepared from the plant and the art of temporary tattooing based on those dyes.

Henna has been used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, and fingernails, as well as fabrics including silk, wool and leather. The name is used in other skin and hair dyes, such as black henna and neutral henna, neither of which is derived from the same henna plant.
