Common name:
Pink Bauhinia

Origin:
Madagascar

Description:
This little-known orchid tree produces remarkable, pale pink flowers which have a single yellow petal full of red-purple spots. It’s a tropical brush that is native to Madagascar. However, scientists assumed for a long time that the species originated from Birma. In a temperate climate, the plant can be kept as a houseplant in a sunny spot. In addition, the leaves are extraordinary pretty in the shape of a hoof print or butterfly. During dry periods, the plant loses its leaves. In the tropics, it’s an invasive species that already has caused a lot of problems in Australia. That’s why you can’t cultivate this species in tropical regions.
 
Germination instructions:

Drie van de 5 zaden zijn uitgekomen. De plantjes zijn nog klein (maar ze zijn ook nog jong). Ze hebben mooie bladeren.

Alle zaden zijn snel ontkiemd en de deden het allemaal ook goed in de grond. 1 heb ik er gehouden die nu al meer dan een meter langs is (ongeveer 10 maanden oud).

1 zaadje is ontkiemd na enkele weken en doet het goed, de rest nog niet, weet niet of deze nog gaan uitkomen
