Common name:
Grandidier's baobab

Origin:
Madagascar

Description:
This impressive tree from Madagascar is the largest among the baobabs and is now highly threatened in its existence by the further encroachment of agriculture. The tree can be planted outside in a warm climate or kept inside as a houseplant or bonsai in a temperate climate.

In winter, the tree will hibernate and lose its leaves. Throughout this period, little water has to be given to the plant. You can regularly water the plant throughout the rest of the year. The ground must be well drained and the baobab likes to be in a sunny spot.

Germination instructions:
Soak seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water. Sow them in sowing soil and keep the temperature between 25 and 30 degrees of Celsius. Keep the soil moist constantly. 

Sowing time:
All year round

13-05-2020 de zaden gezaaid, vandaag (19-05-2020) kwam de eerste al boven de grond uit! Hopelijk volgt de rest snel.

3 van de 5 zaden in de verpakking sterk beschadigd (in stukjes en brokjes) en dus 'onzaaibaar.'

Twee zaden alvorens laten weken in water en 1 zaadje in gibberelline mix. Hierna gezaaid in normale potgrond en weggezet in een van 25C. Alle drie de zaden zijn tegelijkertijd opgekomen binnen 1,5 week. De overige twee zaden ga ik later zaaien!

Afgelopen zaterdag 27-10-18 de zaden gezaaid in een propagator, en op 1-11-18 zijn er al 3 gekiemd.

Uitstekend. In propagator laten kiemen bij 25-30 graden, 100% resultaat; Na een week al ontkieming. Inmiddels staan er 6 exemplaren kaarsrecht voor het raam.
