Bouea macrophylla - Maprang Tree

 Bouea macrophylla - Maprang Tree (Boue macrophylla (Maprang tree))

My little Maprang trees are starting to grow new leaves. It looks very closely to a mango tree which it’s related. Photo taken April 27, 2023.

Is that a Bo tree growing out of the pot to the right? My F.macrophylla are doing that too. I just hack them back. I grew them from seed and have nowhere to put the giants.
That does look exactly like a Mango. Is it more tropical?

Yes, it a Ficus religiosa. I have so many popping up everywhere. I need to air-layer them. Every time roots hit the ground it grows a new tree.

Supposedly, Maprang trees will tolerate temps down to 30 degrees. It’s slightly less hardy than a mango tree (from what I’ve read).
