Product description

This baobab species is from the most northern area of Madagascar and only has a few small populations left. In the Mahory forest, which is part of Ankarana National Park, the largest examples can be found and the growth of young seedlings goes well in this protected nature area. In other areas however, barely any new trees grow because of habitat loss and only old trees can be found. This species is eye-catching because of its thick trunk (diameter of ~2 meter) and its horizontally growing branches. Water is stored in the trunk to survive dry periods, because it also loses its leaves in dry periods. In the growth phase the species prefers a sunny, warm place with a small amount of water given regularly. Provide a soil with good drainage that is calcium-rich.

Sowing instructions: This is the most difficult to germinate species of all the baobabs. We are still trying to find out what makes it so hard to germinate these relatively large seeds. This is the method we advise for now:
Sandpaper the seeds on one place until a change of colour is visible. Then soak the seeds for 48 hours in warm water (25-30dgC) and sow them in a mix of sowing mix and sand (1:3). Keep the soil lightly moist and keep at 25-28dgC. Germination can occur within a few weeks, but can take longer and is still possible as long as the seeds are solid.

Deze is inderdaad lastig om te kiemen, op dit moment zijn er 2 gelukt, dit doordat ik ze in een heel warme omgeving heb gezet. De eerste is dichtbij de houtkachel tot kieming gekomen en de 2e in de serre, waar het overdag gemakkelijk 35-40 graden is, dus ik vermoed dat extreme warmte goed kan zijn. Is wel een prachtige baobab om te hebben!
