Common name:
Queensland bottle tree

Origin:
Australia

Description:
The Queensland bottle tree got its name from the swollen trunk that has the shape of a bottle. The tree stores water in the trunk that can be used during dry periods. In nature, this tree can reach a height of 20 meters, but because of its slow growth, this won’t be quickly achieved in colder climates. In its natural habitat, the tree can survive temperatures between -10 and +50 degrees Celsius, which is why its ability to adapt is very high. In addition, the bottle tree is not picky when it comes down to types of soil and it easily recovers after it is repotted. It’s not exactly known what the minimum temperature for this species is, but it’s for the best if you protect this plant against temperatures below -10 degrees Celsius. Provide a sunny spot.

Germination instructions:
Sow the seeds in sowing mix and let them germinate at 25-30 degC. Keep the soil constantly moist.

Sowing time:
All year round

Kiempercentage erg hoog. 3 zaden in de grond gedaan en allemaal zijn ze ontkiemt. Ze staan inmiddels al 2 jaar en je ziet dat de stam het water opslaat.

Kiempercentage van 90% dus deze mag van mij als (kiem)moeilijkheid: makkelijk krijgen.
Al na een week kwam de eerste boven kijken en ze bleven maar kiemen!
Heb ze gezaaid in een mix van zaai/stekgrond met vermiluciet (4:1) in een afgesloten kweekkastje bij de radiator met kweeklamp.
Service is trouwens uitstekend! Op vragen of opmerkingen wordt snel en zéér correct gereageerd.

Zeer leuke boompjes. Ben alleen in twijfel hoevaak/hoeveel water ik ze moet geven. Iemand enig idee?

Mooie boompjes, 9 van de 10 zaden uitgekomen en groeien als kool
