Scientific name: Caesalpinia pulcherrima 'Rosea'
Common name: Pink Peacock flower / Pride of Barbados / Pink Bird of Paradise
Origin: South America

It’s a pink variety of the common peacock flower and is rarely seen. The flowers are quite beautiful, already appearing in the second year, and after pollination, pods grow which burst open (you can clearly hear this), presenting brown seeds. It’s a fast grower with beautiful, pinnate leaves and can be kept as a container plant too. Move the plant indoors when it freezes outside and provide a sunny spot.

Sowing description: First soak the seeds in lukewarm water for 24 hours. Then sow them in sowing mix and let them germinate at 20-25 degC.

Sowing time: Whole year
Difficulty: Easy
Minimum temperature: 5 degrees Celcius

Na 9 dagen 1 zaadje ontkiemd . Nu afwachten op de andere zaden en of het dan inderdaad een snelle groeier is.

Snelle kiemer, binnen 1 week. Weken en oppervlakkig gezaaid op 25 graden..
Zijn binnen een maand tot ong. 30cm gegroeid staan nu in de serre..wel het idee dat ze meer licht nodig hebben dan de gillesii.

I've seen this growing in New Orleans in USA. It's just beautiful.
