Rudrakshi now strikes roots in Karnataka

But, rudrakshi plants can grow in West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Karnataka as well. Shringeshwar, a farmer belonging to Koolur village in Koppa taluk of Chikmagalur district grew these plants in his courtyard as many as eight years back. These plants have now grown into big trees and have even borne fruit.
Ripened rudrakshi fruits fall to the ground on their own.

If these fruits are soaked in water for at least ten days, the skin gets separated from the seed. According to Shringeshwar, these plants can be grown even in sunny weather. This is an evergreen tree, and doesn’t require too much of special attention.
The seeds are also used in Ayurvedic preparations.
They can be grown in the shade of coffee and tea plants.
