A very graceful palm from the Philippines that does well as a houseplant. In nature, it is a small palm of up to 5 meters in size with leaves up to 1.5 meters long that is widely planted in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. The trunk starts wide, then has a number of rings and is green at the top, making it very decorative. The flowerrs can be up to 60 cm in size and are coloured green-gray. These flowers are followed by 3 cm large, green fruits that turn bright red towards the end of December. That is why this palm is also called Christmas palm: it is beautifully decorated around Christmas. Provide a light spot and water the plant regularly.

De zaden zijn niet echt vers. Dat is wel een ding blijkbaar bij manilla zaden. Ik heb ze hier 2x besteld die deden het niet, en heb zaden mee genomen vers van vakantie en kreeg er een instructie bij die sterk afwijkt wel van de ons zaden instructie. Misschien heeft iemand er wat aan 😊 dus belangrijk is vers en lang laten weken en pellen!! Je kan ze op water laten ontkiemen of in een ziplockzakje dan zijn ze binnen 2 weken ontkiemt! Dus pellen en ongeveer max 1 week in de thermosfles met warm water (elke dag verversen) en dan in een zakje in natte watjes en dan moet het binnen no time goed komen. Ik heb nu 7 kleine manilla palmen en 8 ontkiemde zaadjes :) en goed warm houden is belangrijk.
