Snel ontkiemd, de meeste in de koelkast al. Daarnaast ook veel zaden ontkiemd. Hele kleine fijne kiemplantjes. Erg tevreden mee.

Deze boom groeit nu ook veel in Sao Paulo.
Deze soort staat bij mijn broer in Sao Paulo achter zijn huis en de boom is wel zo'n 60 meter groot. En als het regent, zie je de kleuren mooi naar voren komen.
