Ancient Asain myth male vs female Banyan tree + 28/11/21 Actifit report.
Hello my Hive bees, I hope you all are fine and enjoying.
Today I want to share with you a myth which is used by Hakeems in Asia. They say that Banyan tree can be male and female and as by their belief the best herbal items and medicines are made from the seeds, leaves, milk, hanging roots(beard), fruit and leaflets of a male tree.
In their view, the female Banyan tree is short in height, does not has very wide leaves and does not has much hanging roots(beard).
Today while actifitting, as I was in the park playing a bit with my kids, I also noted the same difference in two Banyan trees which were just 30 or 40 feet away from each other.
This can be a female tree as by ancient Asian myth.
This is another view of the tree with the roots hanging(beard) on the stem.
Another view of the hanging roots.
You can note their quantity on the tree clearly here below.
This is a bit far view of the tree.
And this is the other tree (may be male) in the park which was taller than the previous one.
This is the view of the hanging roots of this tree.
Another view of roots and you can notice their quantity as well. They are much more than the previous one.
Again in these pictures below you can notice the roots easily. They all appear much much more than the previous one.
I do not know whether this myth is true or not but I have consulted a lot of herbal doctors (Hakeems) about this myth and they all say that a Banyan tree has two genders male and female.
If anyone of you knows about the accuracy of this myth then kindly confirm in comments below.
