The Bismarck palm is a rare and quite beautiful palm from the north and west of Madagascar. The foliage is silver blue, and grows up to 3 meters wide. In nature, the species can sometimes reach a height of 25 meters, but the species stays small enough as a container- or houseplant. The plant loves to stand in a sunny spot and can withstand temperatures up to 3 degrees below zero. The species is named after Otto von Bismarck, a praised Chancellor of the German Empire from 1871 till 1890.

Sowing description: First, soak the seeds for 2 days in warm water (preferably 30 degrees Celsius) and change the water several times. Sow the seeds in sowing mix and silica sand (1:1) and press the seeds halfway into the ground. Cover with plastic foil or glass and keep the ground moist. Place on a warm spot (30 degrees Celsius with bottom heat or near a heater/stove). The seeds usually germinate after 6 to 8 weeks, possibly later.

Beide zaden kwamen na een paar weken op. Vanaf het begin al mooie silvergrijze blaadjes. De zaden enkele dagen in warm water laten weken en gezaaid in zaai en stekgrond en flink wat grof zand.

I have purchased 20 seeds. I kept them 3 days in water and changed the water each 24 hours. I put all the seeds in a big pot, with a 5 cm distance between the seeds. After 2-3 weeks I checked the seeds each day and when I see that one is germinated, I moved in a single pot. The seeds must be inserted like half in soil and half outside and be sure that the soil will not go dry. I have germinated 7 seeds until now. So there is a 35% germination rate until now. I'm still expecting for the others to germinate. This is my first time germinating Bismarckia seeds but I'm happy with the result.

Begin november zaden gezaaid in 2 potten met mengsel van zaaigrond zand vermiculiet en spaghnum mos.
In propegator weggezet met hoge luchtvochtigheid en temperatuur tussen 25 en 31 graden.
Na 6 weken zoiets aan bovenkant niks te zien doch maar aan onderkant flinke penwortels
Overgeplant naar een diepe pot maar kon hierdoor door de hoogte ze niet meer in de propegator terugzetten.
Boven verwarming in een kamer gezet en over de potten een transparante plastic zak om vochtig klimaat te creรซren "bovengronds"
Onder de potten een deksel.
Nu eind januari 2023 onder het plastic 2 baby Bismarck palmjes .
