Description:
Beautiful palm tree which originates from Mauritius, however it has almost gone extinct in its original growing area due to the destruction of its habitat. At a young age the palm produces leaves with red nerves, which in time will colour blue-gray and become sturdy. It is a rare relative from the Bismarckia palm from Madagascar and grows well indoors.

Germination instructions:
Soak the seeds for 48 hours in lukewarm water and afterwards sow in a deep container filled with sowing mix. Keep the soil constantly moist (not wet) at a temperature of around 25-30 degrees Celcius.

Sowing time:
All year round.

Average
