Description:
The Za baobab is the most common baobab in Madagascar, with populations in the south and north-west of the island. The large, broad trunk can reach up to 40 metres height with a width of 6 metres. The largest specimen has a circumference of an impressive 23 metres. Large amounts of water are stored in the trunk so the tree can survive long droughts. The bark is grey and the tree grows in a pointed way. The baobab can be kept as a pot plant and can be pruned.

Sowing description:
Scarify the seeds in one place with sandpaper and soak them for 24 hours in lukewarm water. Sow in sowing mix and germinate at 20-25 degrees Celsius. Keep the soil continuously moistened. Germination can occur after a couple of weeks, but it can also take longer. So long as the seeds are solid, they can potentially germinate.

Sowing time:
Whole year

Level of difficulty:
Intermediate
