The flowers emit a lovely scent in the evening, so this species is ideal as a houseplant. The species is especially known for its oil which is extracted from the flowers.

The ylang-ylang is known of its oil that is extracted from the flowers. The flowers smell lovely (especially in the evening), which is why the ylang-ylang is ideal as a houseplant. The oil is used in aromatherapy against high blood pressure and skin problems, but is also used in perfumery in perfumes such as Chanel no. 5. The star-shaped flowers are white at first, and then change colour from greenish yellow, to orange in the end. It’s a fast grower that likes to be sprinkled with water and must be moved to a fairly bright spot.

Germination instructions:
Sow the seeds in sowing mix and let them germinate at 25-30 degC. Keep the soil constantly moist. Germination should take place after 4 to 8 weeks, but can take longer.

Sowing time:
All year round

Zaden ontvangen in mei en direct gezaaid volgens beschrijving. Nu, een paar maand later, eind juli niets opgekomen en ook geen teken dat dit nog gaat gebeuren…

Volgens instructie gezaaid: niks.
Heb via internet gezocht naar andere methoden, weer geprobeerd: niks.
Geen enkele van mijn zaden ontkiemde.

Dit is gebeurd met al de zaden die ik besteld heb van verschillende planten.

Wonderlijk, donderdag de zaden gezaaid en op dinsdag al de eerste ontkieming!!! Dus wel hele verse kwaliteit.
