It has a scientific name of Mitragyna speciosa, and you can usually find a lot of these in Thailand. Some of these plants are cultivated in parts of Africa. It is reported that the tree can grow as tall as a hundred feet.
Contrary to what other people say, the part of the plant that gives the health benefits is the leaves, which contains a chemical agent called alkaloid. With its soothing and energizing effects, it is no surprise to learn that the Kratom is related to coffee beans. As a tree, the Kratora is easy to distinguish with its green leaves and bright yellow flowers. Unlike most of the trees that are found in Asia, the Kratom plant is known to shed all its leaves regularly.
Experts say that this unpredictable phenomenon is due to the tree’s intense sensitivity to the changes in the environment.
On the other hand, the Mitragyna speciosa grows back the leaves as rapidly as it lost them. It is said that the shedding of leaves often happens during hot and dry months, and the leaves are most abundant during cold and rainy months. While the Kratom can be grown indoors, you will find that it will mature very well when planted in moist and thick soil. It is said to be very high-maintenance, since it needs a lot of water and fertilizer every day. Some types only grow in fertile soil. The Kratora plant is commonly used as an alternative medicine to treat psychological disorders, such as depression and stress.
