I could not find any publication reporting Manchuka tree as synonym for Moringa tree.
Moringa tree > Moringa oleifera > synonyms in different languages:
I could not find a scientific name of Manchuka tree at all, only Manuka > Kahikatoa > Tea-tree > Leptospermum scoparium, a type of plant very different to Moringa:
The only Manchuka tree:
In Africa, there is a species of tree called manchuka. The people in Congo feed the leaves of this tree, which are high in nutrition, to their cattle to fatten them up before taking them to market. They also pound the leaves of this tree on a stone mill, add some oil, and fry them in batter. It may be a good idea to plant many manchuka trees and make powder out of the entire tree after throwing out the root, which is poisonous. The powder can be used to make bread.
And in another publication:
"….. To be heated with manchuka or madder root oil" is not evident if manchuka and madder root oil is the same.
Madder root oil is extracted from the roots of climbers of Rubia family without any relationship to Moringa:
We have a moringa tree in our house where it has large amount of leaves fall on every day. I dont know how to control it.
There are several possible reasons for Moringa tree dropping leaves:
First of all over-watering and waterlogging.
It also loses its leaves when the average temperature drops below 70 degrees.
You write IN your house; a too small pot may induce leaf loss.
Relocation could be another reason.
Moringa trees don`t like drafts.
Finally a pest or disease might cause the problem.
